Carter Jonas is advising Scott Properties on the promotion of Green Belt land south of Aveley, capable of delivering up to 2,000 new dwellings, new retail, employment floorspace, a new primary school, and a link road bypassing traffic from the centre of Aveley. The site is identified as a major urban extension within emerging planning policy and is strongly supported by the Council.
Our planning team has led promotion activities, working closely with the Council to bring forward the development proposals. This has included an enquiry by design process, led by the Council and assisted by the Princes Foundation. As part of the proposals, Scott Properties are working with the Council to ascertain how development at the site can provide cross-funding for the regeneration of Aveley high street to further benefit existing and future residents.
The team are pursuing a planning performance agreement with the Council that would cover the Local Plan making and application determination. This will include twin-tracking the application process with the Council’s production of its Local Plan, to allow for the release of the site from the Green Belt and a supportive Local Plan allocation to coincide as closely as possible with an application approval.
