This client wanted to redevelop his site, which was a brownfield site and a long established vehicle dismantling and recycling business. Outline plans were prepared for a mixed use development of housing and a small retail convenience store. The application was initially faced with numerous objections, including issues surrounding purported contamination, drainage and sewerage, affordable housing issues, landscaping and environmental health. What seemed like insurmountable issues, were each tackled by Owen Devenport one-by-one and expert advice was sought where results were proving difficult to achieve through negotiation and mediation.

In the end, after months of post submission discussions and consultation the decision to approve this outline development was made by Conwy County Borough Council. This was an example of the Company's ability to work with officers of the Authority and to secure an approval through successful co-ordination and agreement. Our client now has a valuable permission that will enable him to move forward with plans to relocate to a more suitable environment for his business
