We recently secured outline permission for two bungalows on a generously sized plot in Little Eaton. The plot has a vacant and dilapidated bungalow already on site, which was no longer fit for habitation. The landowner approached us looking to maximise the potential value in the site.
We carried out an assessment of the site. The plot was well screened from surrounding properties, was well connected to surrounding services and public transport links, and had good visibility in both directions where the access track met the road. We felt justified in suggesting a planning application for the demolition of the existing dwelling and the development of two large new detached properties.
Ecology was a big issue on-site, as the plot was wildly overgrown. We engaged a licensed surveyor to ensure no protected species would be affected through the course of the development.
Importantly, there was a pre-existing legal right of way was in place on the access track for one of the neighbouring properties. This meant we had to serve a Notice 1 as part of the submission to inform the neighbours of the application.
The application was approved by the local planning committee and the site is now an attractive opportunity to developers and has benefited from a significant uplift in the value.
We work with developers of all sizes, from small companies working on one property at a time to large housebuilders and commercial organisations where multi-million pound schemes are the norm.
