I can provide advice on:

Threesixty Developments called on Carter Jonas’s expertise following the refusal of a planning application for 202 student rooms known as The Hub. In discussion with the applicant, Carter Jonas appealed the decision and simultaneously submitted a second application for 195 student rooms.

Following extensive consultation, this received strong officer support. Prior to the application being determined, the Hub was upheld at appeal and the second scheme, which was less commercially viable, was withdrawn. Carter Jonas then submitted a Section 73 application on
the initial scheme to safeguard the applicant’s position.

With the benefit of the appeal decision, Carter Jonas submitted a fourth application - a hybrid proposal, which retained the scale and mass of the initial Hub scheme, but followed the more sympathetic design of the second.

As a result of its clever yet cautious approach, Carter Jonas was successful in gaining three planning consents, which ultimately resulted in an improved design and a greater number of student rooms, thus improving the profitability of the scheme.
