Development in the Green Belt on Brownfield Sites

Posted on 20/08/2015

Bourne End, Hemel Hempstead Following careful and collaborative negotiations with the local authority, we have successfully secured detailed planning consent for the construction of 3 new bespoke residential dwellings in the Green Belt area of Bourne End.

In accordance with paragraph 89 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), the scheme was able to demonstrate that very special circumstances existed. As a result, permission has been granted for the complete redevelopment of the previously developed site, (brownfield land), as the scheme does not have any greater impact on the openness of the Green Belt.

Long Buckby, Northamptonshire
We have secured detailed planning consent for Parrott Developments and the Catholic Diocese of Northampton to build 13 new dwellings in Long Buckby. The site is partly previously developed brownfield land, and is considered infill development in the context of the surrounding ongoing and proposed developments. The proposal provides a selection of 2, 3 and 4 bed family homes and 40% of the development will be provided as affordable housing. The scheme has been designed to create active street frontages to enhance natural surveillance and provide definition of public and private space.
Throughout the planning process a high level of communication was maintained with both the Local Planning Authorities and Highways Departments, and their feedback used in the development of the proposals.
