Our client Fauji Properties sought to achieve planning permission for a new residential development on-site the former Newbury Park Synagogue and the former Lawn Tennis Club. We put forward a strong planning argument for the loss of the synagogue on site, and provided evidence that the tennis courts were last used in 2007, therefore remaining derelict for a decade.
The Planning Committee members unanimously approved the development, recognising the high quality of the scheme and the benefits of meeting housing needs in the borough.

“Planning Insight have been instrumental in securing planning permission for our development in Newbury Park. From instruction, Peter and the team handled the co-ordination of consultants and the architects to ensure the scheme submitted and all supporting information was robust. They devised innovative strategies to reduce the planning risk on the project and worked tirelessly in negotiating the section 106 contributions. I will be using Planning Insight on all our projects going forward and happily recommend them as planning consultants.”Wessex Close Sukhee Bains, Wessex Close
Following a refusal of planning permission, Sophie coherently explained we should appeal the refusal. The Planning Insight team provided comprehensive advice on other enforcement issues that arose. The planning appeal was subsequently allowed and planning permission granted. We are delighted with the outcome and would have no hesitation recommending Sophie and Planning Insight in the future.”, 6 Rotherwick Hill
