Location: Barnham – West Sussex
DOWSETTMAYHEW Planning was instructed to promote horticultural land for development as part of the emerging Arun District Local Plan. Following discussions and negotiations with the Planning Authority, DOWSETTMAYHEW Planning established that there was no five-year housing land supply within the district and therefore advised the client to submit a planning application for the development rather than continue to promote the site.
An outline planning application was submitted and DOWSETTMAYHEW Planning managed the application through the planning process. The application was presented to Planning Committee but refused. The subsequent appeal, which was dealt with as a Hearing, was allowed.
The planning permission allowed for reinvestment within the wider horticultural business and DOWSETTMAYHEW Planning continue to advise on planning matters surrounding the residential development and the ongoing horticultural activity at the site.
