FEATURED PROJECT

Housing Land Supply Evidence, Arun

In support of a planning appeal for the refusal of outline planning permission for 200 homes in Barnham, Arun District we were appointed to provide Expert Witness evidence demonstrating that the Council’s housing land supply position was less than 3-years supply. In allowing the appeal, the Inspector concluded that at best the Council had a 2.6 years housing land supply position.

FEATURED PROJECT

Educator Developer Contributions, Yapton

As part of the s106 negotiations associated with a development comprising 300 dwellings at Yapton, Arun we prepared education evidence to identify a deliverable off-site solution. The Arun Local Plan sought the delivery of a new 1 form entry school on the site. However, in response to wishes from the local community to only have a single school, we identified and agreed with the Education Authority a feasible expansion to the existing primary school.

FEATURED PROJECT

Educator Developer Contributions Analysis, Deventry

As part of the s106 negotiations associated with a development comprising 1,100 dwellings to the south east of Daventry, we prepared education needs evidence demonstrating that the level of pre-school / early years contributions being sought by the Education Authority was over double that actually required. Our evidence reduced the s106 early years contribution by over £2 million and has led to a wider change to the methodology and approach applied by the Education Authority.
