Case Study

Curtis Fields, Weymouth

Client: Betterment Properties (Weymouth) Limited

In 2012 Sibbett Gregory’s planning department recognised a window of opportunity to obtain planning consent. The Planning authority was unable to demonstrate a 5 year supply of deliverable housing land

  • An outline planning application was submitted for phase 1 of a potentially much larger development, Phase 1 was for a mixed use development comprising 180 dwellings, a retail convenience store and offices.
  • Determination of the application was continually being deferred and an appeal was submitted against the planning authority‚Äôs failure to determine the application.
  • The appeal was allowed in January 2014 following a public inquiry at which Sibbett Gregory presented the planning evidence.
  • Following the commencement of development a further outline application was submitted for phases2-4.
  • The proposal envisaged the construction of approximately 500 dwellings in three phases. The proposal envisaged that 30% of the dwellings will be affordable. Detail negotiations lead to an offer to transfer land for a primary school extension.
  • Sibbett Gregory represented the applicant at planning committee. Outline planning permission was granted subject to conditions and a planning Obligation.
