After the refusal of planning permission, we were brought in by Fox Land and Property to provide an expert witness service and an independent design review for a housing scheme on a 9 ha site on the edge of Sawtry in Huntingdonshire. 


A new masterplan was drawn up by us to provide a greater level of detail and a sensitive contextual response. As a result, the design reason for refusal

was removed in agreement with the local planning authority. The principle of

development was also then won on appeal.


The reserved matters were subsequently approved and construction is now underway with the scheme being built by Charles Church and Bellway Homes.
