Lioncourt Homes

Client: Lioncourt Homes

Location: Shifnal, Telford

The Urbanists acted on the behalf of Lioncourt Homes in securing reserved matters permission for 400 homes at Haughton Road, Shifnal.  The first parts of the commission were to prepare the detailed development layout plans using the developer’s established house-types, and to prepare the associated full landscape details.  The Urbanists then co-ordinated and managed the complete reserved matters submissions.


Despite the scheme already having outline planning permission, there was still considerable local opposition and political interest in the detailed design proposals.  We addressed this through a combination of engagement with the Parish Council and also by supplementing the formal scheme drawings with hand-drawn coloured perspectives and elevations, which were used at Planning Committee to improve Members’ understanding of the scheme. 

Once the reserved matters permission was secured we discharged the pre-commencement conditions attached to the outline planning permission to enable site works to be undertaken.
