Erection of new residential development in edge of village location
In January 2015, outline planning permission was secured for a 29 unit residential development in Barnoldswick, Pendle.
Pendle Council initially rejected the application in July 2014 on the grounds of highway safety and because the development would extend beyond Barnoldswick’s settlement boundary. However, despite some local opposition, the planning inspector found in favour of the proposals at appeal.
The local authority could not demonstrate a five-year supply of housing land, and this development will help bring much needed new homes to the area.
Robust evidence base was key in securing planning permission through written representations, and all unreasonable costs were recovered to the benefit of the client. Construction is due to start by early 2016.
