We are delighted to have achieved Permission in Principle (PiP) on appeal on land adjacent to the Darling Buds of May Nursery, Headley, near Newbury, for a scheme of between five and nine dwellings.

Permission was refused by Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council over concerns relating to landscape impact and flood risk and land outside of the settlement boundary.

However, in allowing the appeal, the Inspector agreed that the proposal broadly complied with the development plan, made appropriate use of previously developed land, was contained within the local landscape, and would benefit the borough’s supply of housing, contributing to the presumption in favour of sustainable development.

Pro Vision provided planning, design and ecology services. Technical Details Consent (TDC) is now required.
