Our clients had sought to get the greenfield site, in Lancashire, allocated for housing under the Local Plan for more than 30 years, without success. The site had previously been considered unsuitable by the LPA and Planning Inspectorate.

Following a review of the site and history, we felt there was an opportunity to obtain planning approval and developed a strategy accordingly. Using our network of consultants, we submitted a robust planning submission package which the Committee Members ultimately voted in favour for, granting valuable planning permission for this residential development.
