Following identification as a residential development opportunity through an Estate-wide farmstead review process, site capacity and viability was also explored.

The site was promoted through the Local Plan process, ultimately securing allocation including greenfield land beyond the confines of the immediate farmstead. Split into market-facing parcels, two outline planning applications were submitted, supported by a comprehensive masterplan, showing how the site could be developed.

P&DG managed the multi-disciplinary team, navigating multiple constraints including proximity to ancient woodland, challenging topography, local heritage values and protected species, to achieve support for redevelopment of this edge-of-settlement site.
