Successful application in a Conservation Area

We were brought into a project which had been refused permission for a number of reasons in a Conservation Area of a North Norfolk village, very near to the Grade 1 listed church. It was appealed and although it was dismissed by the Planning Inspector, only one reason for refusal remained, with the others having been successfully argued away in our appeal statement. The sole remaining reason was overcome by a relatively straightforwarded redesign of the front dormers by an architect, and a resubmission has been granted permission.

Successful rural worker application 

We recently supported an applicant to gain permission for a rural workers dwelling at a farm in Breckland. The farm places a high emphasis on conservation, having been managed under the Higher Stewardship Scheme with Natural England for the last 10 years. The applicant is expanding on this to develop a nature reserve, with the new dwelling intended to be used to employ a warden. 

Appeal success

Success at Appeal

We've achieved planning consent for a single dwelling in Aslacton, successfully overturning the Planning Authority's decision at appeal. 

Although within the settlement boundary the site was originally refused due to its affect on the character and appearance of the area. CCP was able to demonstrate that it was in keeping and appropriate

Regeneration of Druids Heath

CCP are providing strategic advice and support to Birmingham City Council’s biggest and highest priority estate regeneration scheme. The estate, Druids Heath, is the poorest council estate in England and on top of poor quality housing and tower blocks, has a number of social issues, not least high levels of unemployment. The £43m physical regeneration programme will involve the demolition of tower blocks, the refurbishment of houses, and the building of around 250 new homes. In addition, open spaces will be landscaped. The aim is to use this as a driver to deliver greater social change by working closely with the community.

Guestwick is a small rural community in Broadland. There hasn't been any new build housing in the last 50 years, only conversions and extensions. The community would like to use the Neighbourhood Plan as a way of delivering sensitive growth to a high design quality, reflecting their Design Guide. We've supported them by developing an evidence base.

Filby Neighbourhood Plan

Filby is a pretty village in the Broads. The community are keen to use their Neighbourhood Plan to protect and enhance the natural environment and ensure that any future development meets the needs of their current and future residents. We have supported the community through all stages of the plan's development, including work with the Norfolk Wildlife Trust to develop green corridors that will be a focus for habitat creation and enhancement in the parish. At Regulation 14 Natural England responded "Your draft plan is really excellent in terms of protecting and enhancing the environment, one of the best I have seen recently."

Filby's final plan has been submitted to the borough council and is awaiting examination.

Diss & District Neighbourhood Plan

DDNP involves 7 parishes working together from two district council areas and is one of the most complex in the country as a result. The plan will create an effective growth strategy for the area, delivering around 500 new homes. Alongside this it will identify a new walking and cycling network, designate local green spaces, identify key views and heritage assets that are important to the local community. We have supported DDNP to:

  • Develop an evidence base to support the plan;

  • Undertake a character appraisal to identify local green spaces, key views, non-designated heritage assets and walking and cycling links;

  • Appraise sites to deliver housing growth

  • Consult the community on issues and options for the plan
