Recent Planning Success

Press release: 15:06:20

Despite the challenges of the Covid-19 Pandemic, TOR has very much stayed open for business and has maintained its excellent working relationships and effective communication with clients, consultant colleagues, local authorities, statutory consultees and the wider community. As a consequence it’s been an eventful couple of months. TOR continues to play its part in assisting clients to deliver good growth. Now more than ever, delivering planning permissions is vital to aid economic recovery through sustainable development. The following schemes, led by the team at TOR and in the period since lockdown, have received resolutions to approve through local decisions:

 

•  Land North of Cherry Hinton, a joint venture between Marshall Group and Endurance Estates, in Cambridgeshire, for up to 1,200 new homes and a 90 bed space retirement living facility, local centre, primary school and all the other necessary infrastructure


•  Land at Horndean, East Hampshire, for Bloor Homes, securing outline planning consent for 800 homes, new primary school, open space and, again, all the other necessary infrastructure


•  Land at Malmesbury, Wiltshire, for Gleeson Strategic Land, for 74 new homes (unallocated and under the presumption, engaged by a five-year housing land supply shortfall)

 

•  Land at Lyneham, Wiltshire, for Gleeson Strategic Land, for 50 new homes and land for community use (unallocated and under the presumption, engaged by a five-year housing land supply shortfall)
