Our clients had purchased a home on the edge of the town settlement boundary, which benefitted from a substantial front orchard garden parcel of virgin, greenfield land, albeit with drainage issues and itself located in open countryside.

Initial sketches, by a local designer, had sought an unimaginative scheme, which it was felt was unlikely to achieve planning approval.

Our expert team developed a strategy for the development of two substantial family homes which was ultimately recommended for approval, significantly raising the value of their landholding.

Planning permission was granted for the residential development and our client ultimately (following substantial interest) sold the two plots off, individually, to self-builders realising a healthy profit.
