I can provide advice on:

Resolution to grant outline planning permission has been secured for around 2,000 sqm of new mixed-use commercial floor space at the Earith Business Park in Huntingdonshire by our planning professionals, who were acting on behalf of Lennox Property Investments Ltd. 


The site falls outside of, but close to, the Earith Business Park ‘Established Employment Area’ as designated by Huntingdonshire District Council’s development plan. Despite falling outside of the designated employment area, we were able to successfully argue that a new commercial development in this location would be sustainable and appropriate. Ultimately, we gained support of both the officer and the Council’s planning committee.

We also provided masterplanning services to Lennox Property Investments Ltd and produced the supporting illustrative masterplan that accompanied the application.
