Cottage Farm, Oadby

Location: Oadby, Leicestershire
Client: Bloor Homes Ltd
Sector: Assess Promote Shape
Scope: Communities

Define were engaged to prepare and submit an outline planning application for the development of 150 dwellings on this greenfield site.  The scope of works included the preparation of a Landscape and Visual Appraisal, Masterplan, Design and Access Statement, and Planning Statement, and public and stakeholder consultation.  Whilst the Borough Council decided to refuse planning permission, a subsequent appeal was allowed following a public inquiry.  We presented planning and landscape evidence to the inquiry that established the need for the development and the absence of a five year land supply, demonstrated how the proposals complied with the planning policy context, and highlighted how they would not result in an unacceptable impact on landscape character and visual amenity.
