Stratford on Avon District Council
A 5.6 acre former arable field adjoining a Warwickshire Village.
Rosconn promoted this site adjoining the Warwickshire village of Alderminster, on behalf of the landowners who with longstanding ties to the village wanted to leave a positive legacy.
The site had many issues that required detailed analysis. The two key points here were the impacts on landscape sensitivity and the setting of nearby heritage assets.
Following extensive public consultation and input from our expert consultants, we arrived at a scheme that we felt addressed the key constraints.
Key view points to nearby listed buildings including the Grade II* Church were preserved, a new extensive area of public open space was created including a much sought after village play space and the scheme included badly needed affordable housing.
The planning application was put ‘under the microscope’, as four different planning officers were assigned to the case due to resource issues at the local authority. Despite this Rosconn secured an officer recommendation to grant, which was followed by the planning committee. After this positive determination we were delighted to share the news with the landowners and get busy preparing a marketing strategy to maximise the sale price of the land. After the marketing period the site was then sold to Barwood Homes.
What did our customers say?
“Rosconn have a very impressive dedicated professional team who are focussed both on providing genuine personal service and obtaining very successful results for clients. The experienced team have delivered valuable planning consents and joints sales with me on various strategic residential development sites and I am regularly recommending them to retained clients securing flexible promotional agreements to take other sites forward under the planning process.
The team are honest approachable and I have great faith in the product they offer to deliver results in a challenging planning system.

“My brother and I had occasion to use the services of Rosconn of Stratford-upon-Avon to obtain Planning Permission for and to negotiate the sale of land in Alderminster. The Planning Permission obtained was for twenty-five houses and this was granted in the main because of the professional way in which Rosconn dealt with all aspects of the application, and the subsequent sale to the developers.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Rosconn. They are extremely efficient, straight forward, approachable and easily contactable. As far as we were concerned, being local to us, was a great asset but I would suggest that anyone, from whatever distance, would be equally satisfied with the service offered.
Rosconn and their team always took the trouble to handle any issue with care. No question, however small, was overlooked. We were kept informed during every step of the presentation and I applaud them for an excellent service.”
