Owen Devenport have recently obtained outline planning approval for 5 large detached executive homes on a site set on the edge of an existing development in Colwyn Bay. Currently the site contains a mix of empty agricultural buildings and the consent gained allows for the site to be redeveloped into a high quality residential development.
The application involved extensive discussions and negotiations with the Council on a number of issues including highways, the density of the development, and whether affordable housing should be required. We were able to achieve successful outcomes for our client for all of these issues, and ensure that the Council were satisfied that the development was acceptable.
We also addressed a number of objections that were received from local residents to the scheme, and were able to show that these were not justified.
Having resolved these issues the Case Officer recommended to the Planning Committee that the application be approved. We then spoke in favour of the proposal at the Committee, and the Councillors took on board the points that were made and approved the application.
We are pleased that we were able to bring this application to a successful conclusion, and that a vacant brownfield site will now be used to provide an attractive and valuable development.
