The client owned a site that was a former goods yard but it was located in open countryside. The site was also adjacent to the busy A5025  with a difficult access. The site was surrounded by trees which introduced another difficult element, being the impact upon the ecology. Owen Devenport were instructed to look at the potential of developing this site as a small (but very well located) chalet park. There were many issues to resolve including access and ecology as mentioned above, but also archaeology, layout and indeed the principle of a chalet park in this location. A suitable case was prepared with all bases covered including the potential benefit to the tourism economy should the application be approved. It was some time before the LPA could decide on the application and after all the delay the application was finally granted permission to site 9 new chalets for holiday use in a prime location.
