We were instructed by St Modwen Homes on a residential development scheme in Nottingham.

The Challenge

  • St Modwen Homes had agreed to acquire a ‘live’ Reserved Matters application for a site in Eastwood in order to benefit from the principals and S106 obligations established in the otherwise lapsed outline planning permission for 40 dwellings.
  • We were appointed to substitute the current Reserved Matters drawings to deliver 40 dwellings on a smaller area of the site, and then make a subsequent detailed application for an additional 10 dwellings on the remainder.

Our Solution

  • We entered into pre-app discussions with the LPA to agree the overall planning strategy. We then progressed the amended Reserved Matters application through to determination, securing approval for the 40 dwellings initially. 
  • A detailed application was then submitted for the additional 10 dwellings, which was just below the threshold for requiring affordable housing.

The Results

  • Planning permission was secured for a total of 50 dwellings on the site, an uplift of 25% compared to the original outline consent, without attracting any additional S106 obligations or financial contributions.
