Carter Jonas’s Planning South team have secured planning permission on appeal, following a 4 day public inquiry, for 72 houses on a site in the north Oxfordshire village of Launton.

Planning partner Huw Mellor appeared at the public inquiry as expert planning witness on behalf of Carter Jonas’s client Manor Oak Homes and led the team of consultants that acted in support of the proposed development. Included were architects A T Architecture Limited who produced the application plans, including the proposed site layout shown on the image of the site.

Huw Mellor commented “This is a significant planning outcome for the team and one that would not have been achieved without some very careful advance planning and detailed consideration of the planning issues at hand. This was a largely greenfield site and one set outside the village settlement, in a rural location. Gaining planning consents on such sites are not easily achieved and the allowing of the appeal demonstrates the expert planning advice and keen judgement that Carter Jonas planners can bring to even the most potentially difficult of sites.
