Frisby on the Wreake, Leicestershire

We were appointed by Richborough Estates to help secure planning approval for a residential scheme of 48 dwellings in the village of Frisby on the Wreake, outside of Melton Mowbray.

The Project

We were appointed by Richborough Estates to help secure planning approval for a residential scheme of 48 dwellings in the village of Frisby on the Wreake, outside of Melton Mowbray. The Site was located on greenfield land, originally outside of the village settlement boundaries.

Our Solution

To justify the release of the Site for housing development, we effectively demonstrated its sustainability within the context of the emerging Local Plan and the anticipated requirement for future housing growth.  

Alongside the application, we also promoted the Site through the evolving Neighbourhood and Melton Plans.

Outcome

The application received unanimous approval from Melton Borough Council Planning Committee and obtained the support of the Parish Council following an initial objection. As a result of this successful outcome, the Site was taken to market.
