Our professionals have helped to secure a resolution to grant full planning consent on behalf of Raven Housing Trust for 23 new homes, all for affordable rent, at Chavecroft, Broad Walk, Epsom Downs.

The resolution came following comprehensive pre-application engagement with Reigate & Banstead Borough Council, Surrey County Council Highways and local stakeholders.

Forming part of an established housing estate, Chavecroft consists of a block of studio flats which were used in the 1960s as specialist accommodation for the over 60s and have been more recently been used as temporary housing. The building is of poor quality and is underutilised as the unit types no longer meet the housing needs of the borough.

The scheme, designed by MH Architects, will make effective use of the previously developed site and will provide modern, high quality residential accommodation making a valuable contribution towards local housing needs, in particular affordable housing needs. 

Planning permission will be granted once a Section 106 legal agreement has been completed with the Council.
