Having been successful in assisting to secure planning permission at an adjoining site. Roman Villas Limited requested Planning Insight’s further assistance and expertise, to help achieve planning permission for a new residential development, located on the site of the former Wessex Close Tennis Court.
The strategy was firstly to prepare, and submit, a comprehensive pre-application document, to establish the principle of development and other key aspects of the proposal.
Following a positive pre-application, in which the council agreed with our justification for the residential use on a site that had previously been used as a sports facility – with a few minor amendments to the scheme – a full planning application was submitted.
Our comprehensive planning application was submitted, along with the required supporting documents. Following some minor amendments, which were informed by some of the consultation responses, the application was approved under delegated authority in March 2020.
- Comprehensive pre-application Supporting Note and a Planning Statement for the full application.
- Successfully negotiating with the Council during both the pre-application and the full application stages.
- Reductions in number of pre-commencement conditions.
