Benefits for all – new homes and facilities
This site was allocated in Basildon District Council’s Local Plan. Situated within easy walking distance of Wickford mainline railway station, with trains to St Pancras in 45 minutes, the original promotion centred around an Outline scheme for 200 units, which was refused at Committee.
After much negotiation, the application was again presented at Basildon District Council’s Committee and was eventually approved for 152 residential units in November 2010.
“Outline Planning Applications, with matters reserved (access, appearance, landscaping, layout and scale), play an important role in gaining eventual Full Planning Permission. Land Agents and stakeholder parties need to be sensitive to a multitude of issues to ensure a successful outcome.”
