Rugby Gateway

Sector: Assess Promote Shape
Scope: Communities

Define staff members secured the allocation of the site in the Rugby Borough Core Strategy and led the preparation and submission of an outline planning application for the development of a sustainable urban extension that will provide 1,300 new homes, 36ha of land for employment uses, community facilities and associated open space.  The application was underpinned by a Masterplan developed through a clear understanding of the specific characteristics of the site that sought to maximise the use of existing natural features and respond to the local context to create a distinctive community that is clearly integrated with its surroundings.  Define led negotiations in relation to the grant of planning permission, including the negotiation of a Section 106 package, and have subsequently coordinated the detailed planning and reserved matters applications for three phases of the development.
