Acting for Larkfleet Homes

Marrons Planning acted for Larkfleet Homes on a residential development at Upwood Road, Bury, Huntingdonshire.

The team successfully secured full planning permission in May 2019 for a 92 dwelling residential scheme with a good level of open space and associated landscaping and infrastructure.  The site was an unallocated greenfield site outside of the settlement boundary and, despite this, Marrons Planning consistently argued for its inclusion during the Local Plan examination process and, through proactive working with the Local Planning Authority, secured Planning Committee approval for the scheme prior to the adoption of the plan.

The client was delighted with the outcome as securing permission for an unallocated site when the LPA has a well progressed local plan was always going to be a challenge but through our good relationship with the planning team at the council and skilful negotiation on behalf of the client, they were persuaded to allow this scheme.  Ultimately the scheme was also praised at the planning committee for its high-quality design.

Our colleagues in the legal planning team at Shakespeare Martineau advised on the section 106 considerations on this development.

The Marrons Planning team provided a significant amount of assistance to Larkfleet Homes in achieving – against the odds – the grant of planning permission for 92 new family homes at Bury in Huntingdonshire. Their commercial and planning input throughout site design and determination of the planning application was invaluable and we continue to work closely with the Marrons Planning Team on a number of further residential development projects.
