North West Leicestershire District Council
The site is located adjacent to the Leicestershire village of Heather consisting of a 4.7 acre arable field.
The journey was an interesting one; following the preparation and submission of an application for 36 dwellings we achieved an officer recommendation for approval to grant planning permission.
Despite this the recommendation was overturned at planning committee by chairman’s casting vote.
Undeterred, Rosconn took the application to appeal and assembled a team of expert witnesses to provide evidence. Following a hard fought planning inquiry, we emerged victorious and the appeal was allowed. A decision was then taken to submit a reserved matters application to increase the saleability of the site to prospective purchasers.
Rosconn prepared a robust application that was received positively by the Parish Council, which again reinforces the lengths that Rosconn travel in order to consult meaningfully with Key Local Stakeholders, to ensure that the planning process is as smooth as possible.
What did our customers say?
“Acting on behalf of a landowner, I have recently been involved with Rosconn Strategic Land using them as promoters for a parcel of land at Heather Leicestershire.
From the outset, Dan and his team were efficient and approachable, in both completing the promotion agreement and during the planning process.
Rosconn’s attention to detail and willingness to use specialist consultants and barristers was instrumental in achieving a planning consent. The same attention to detail and timeliness was also shown during the marketing process and ultimately resulted in a successful outcome for all concerned.”
