Enabling Sporting Development

Alongside the development of Marden Cricket and Hockey Club, dha planning have secured a resolution to grant detailed planning permission for a 124 unit residential scheme on the Club’s existing site, on behalf of Countryside Properties who will fund the new sports facilities.

Working with dha transport and Clague Architects, detailed pre-application discussions were entered into with Council Officers to guide the design and layout of the scheme which includes 40% affordable housing provision, Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4, SUDS drainage and new open space provision within the site. Representations made as part of the emerging Local Plan process secured a draft housing allocation for the site which, given the lack of a 5 year supply of housing in the Borough, proved key in securing full planning permission in advance of the Plan’s adoption.
