New Homes Site

Nr Tilsworth, Bedfordshire
We were instructed to sell a site in Hockliffe with the benefit of Planning Permission for the demolition and clearance of the previous use and for the construction of 12 new individually designed new homes.  The Planning application was carefully negotiated with Central Bedfordshire Council and deemed to be an exceptional change of use in what was a brownfield site in the Green Belt and whilst not an unlawful use was a use that policy encouraged change from.  A viability statement accompanied the application and demonstrated that because of the contamination clearance of the site in order to make it residential compliant there would be the requirement to not provide any affordable homes on the site nor make any Section 106 financial contributions.  Ironically after all the hard work getting the change of use the site was sold for its original commercial use and the relatively small operation that had existed for 30 years was replaced by a gigantic pallet yard that occupied fully the 5 acres of land
