Outline Permission for 13 New Family Homes

Sometimes applications don’t run quite as smoothly as one would like or reasonably expect, but the final outcome can make up for most of the frustrations encountered along the way.

We are truly delighted, and rather relieved, to have eventually managed to secure outline planning permission for the erection of 13 new family homes for our client’s previously land-locked site close to the centre of Bloxwich, West Midlands, with access and layout approved as shown on the plan prepared by our in-house architects. The development will see the demolition of 2 existing properties in order to open-up and enable access to the site from the adjacent main road. The approved layout successfully protects and integrates a significant number of mature, and protected, trees into the development, and respects the proximity to the adjacent conservation area.

However, it is fair to say that the application has been anything but plain sailing, and has seen some unexpected curveballs along the way, all of which we have managed to successfully address. In addition, we have found ourselves dealing with 4 different local planning authority planning case officers throughout the determination period of the application, which has brought with it some further issues. However, we are particularly grateful to the final of these officers, Peter Gittens, for his assistance in driving the application through to the long hoped for planning consent, with the application approved, subject to a Section 106 Agreement, under the Council’s Scheme of Delegation.
