The Project

Hollinwood Homes was appointed as developer following a design competition to work in partnership with Blackpool Council, the Homes and Communities Agency (now Homes England) and Great Places to deliver a highly innovative residential scheme in the heart of Blackpool. We were instructed to advise on planning, regeneration, masterplanning and community engagement matters towards producing a successful competition bid and planning application.

Our Solutions

Our team developed an attractive Masterplan and design proposal to create a new community comprising of 410 family homes in a challenging market area. The design was developed to create high-quality housing within a well-connected and attractive environment. Through meaningful engagement with local stakeholders and the effective management of a multi-disciplinary consultant team, we were able to ensure the effective management of the planning process.

The Outcome

We successfully obtained outline planning permission, reserved matters and discharged conditions for the scheme. The quality of the proposed development was recognised with Foxhall Village collecting the Most Innovative Scheme Award at the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) North West Planning Achievement Awards in 2015. It was also shortlisted for a RICS North West 2016 award in the regeneration category. Construction has now been completed.
