Resolution to grant permission secured for constrained site

We are very pleased to announce that we have secured a unanimous resolution to grant full planning permission for 33 units in Blaencwm, Rhondda. 

We were responsible for preparing: the planning application, the scheme layout and we also designed six bespoke house types, while also negotiating the resolution to approve. This demonstrates the value of our integrated and professional approach to planning consultancy and design.

One of the key challenges was to demonstrate that the scheme addressed flood risk policy, which was successfully achieved through comprehensive engagement with Natural Resources Wales.

The conclusion reached by the Local Planning Authority was that the planning application was

“sympathetic to the character and appearance of the locality and the Special Landscape Area, and is acceptable in terms of its consequences for management and mitigation of flood risk, ecological interests, highway safety and affordable housing provision in accordance with relevant LDP policies”

(Officer Report to Committee).

The landowner has overcome a significant hurdle to development and will continue to progress the site.
