Stratford-on-Avon District Council
A 4.9 acre former pastoral field adjoining a Warwickshire village.
The site on first glance was a logical location for development within the village but a number of technical hurdles had to be overcome, including the site being located near to a High Pressure Gas Pipeline and needing a complex drainage strategy.
Extensive technical work was undertaken to overcome these constraints. After effective and positive engagement with the council the scheme secured an officer recommendation for approval.
The application was approved by the District’s Planning Committee, however whilst finalising the S106 legal agreement the Local Authority considered there was a material change in circumstances and they could now demonstrate a five year housing land supply, so took this application back
Rosconn, who were represented by one of the Country’s leading QC’s, attended the District’s Local Plan Examination ensuring the application was not unfairly prejudiced. The application was subsequently approved again at committee. After a period of marketing, Cameron Homes where chosen as the site purchaser and contracts were exchanged that year.
What did our customers say?
“I would advise that Rosconn have acted as promoters in connection with the successful promotion of land to achieve residential planning permission owned by members of my family. I am pleased to report that their advice and professionalism in obtaining planning permission and assisting with achieving a successful sale were excellent.
From a professional point of view I have also acted for a client in the successful promotion of land for residential development. I found all dealings with Rosconn and their solicitors straight-forward and transparent in keeping the landowner regularly informed of developments.“
