Resolution to grant planning permission on land at Tinkers Cross, Fordingbridge

TOR is pleased to have assisted Pennyfarthing Homes achieve a resolution to grant full planning permission at New Forest District’s Planning Committee on 9 February 2022 for 64 homes and associated green infrastructure.


Councillors voted unanimously to approve the scheme, considering it was a well thought out development, and would offer future residents a nice place to live. The scheme includes a mixture of homes, including 30% affordable provision.
 
TOR was able to offer an interdisciplinary team comprising Planning, Architecture, Masterplanning, Landscape Architecture, Environment and Graphics to overcome issues and help in achieving the high quality scheme which was supported by the council.
 
This is the first phase of Strategic Site 17 (SS17), which was allocated for development in the New Forest District Local plan (adopted in 2020). TOR are continuing to work with Pennyfarthing Homes to progress their applications on the southern part of the SS17 allocation, as well as SS18 in Fordingbridge, and elsewhere in the district.
