In the run up to Christmas, we are busy promoting strategic land on behalf of a range of clients. This past week, we have actively participated at the Runnymede Local Plan Examination on behalf of our client, Tarmac, where we are promoting a potential land allocation for a new employment development.
We have also taken instructions from a specialist residential land promoter seeking to deliver new homes in Derbyshire. We have assembled a technical team and are embarking on the exciting early stages of realising the potential of the land.
At a smaller scale, we have submitted a planning application for 3 bungalows on behalf of a local housebuilder (Glebe Homes) in South Derbyshire. Glebe Homes have been very active throughout Derbyshire in recent years and we are proud to be assisting them with another successful development.
Close to our office in Keyworth, we have worked alongside fellow Keyworth business, Welham Architects, to secure planning permission for our client, Bellco Developments. We have delivered planning permission to enhance this development site by adding a contemporary twist whilst recognising the need to deliver commercially viable development. The contemporary single storey dwellings form part of a wider, innovative scheme of apartments. The improvement in design was positively received by planning officers and we were able to secure enhanced off-site contributions to provide affordable housing in the local area as part of these revisions. Construction activity has commenced and we look forward to seeing the completed development.
