Owen Devenport were instructed by a returning client to manage an application for the redevelopment of a site containing a group of dilapidated former agricultural buildings into three 5-7 bed high quality holiday letting units, together with a leisure and events building on Anglesey. The proposal was brought forward to allow our clients to build upon the success of their existing luxury holiday letting unit. After gaining instructions we held initial and then detailed pre-application meetings with the Local Planning Authority to ensure that they were supportive of the application, and to allow for their input into the design of the scheme. This early engagement proved to be invaluable as the comments that were received were helpful in ensuring that all issues were covered in the formal submission.
Following these discussions we then supervised work by our clients’ Architects and other specialist consultants, and brought together their work into an integrated and high quality submission that addressed the range of issues that were raised by the planning officers during pre-application meetings. This attention to detail was helpful during consideration of the Application by the Council as only a limited range of issues were raised during its consideration that required attention. We responded to these for our clients, and assisted them with gathering evidence of the broad support from the local community and businesses for their application.
The resulting permission is for a superb development which will allow our client to develop and expand their existing business, and which will also be a valuable asset for Anglesey’s tourism sector.
