One way to improve your chances of getting planning permission for a new residential development is to make the case that the Council cannot demonstrate an adequate housing land supply.
Stuart has an excellent understanding of the factors that go into making a compelling case about a Council’s lack of housing land supply, including relevant appeal decisions and case law, housing delivery rates and the time it takes from receipt of planning permission to the completion of the first home on site.
Stuart has produced a housing land supply analysis to support a number of planning applications. For one site, Stuart produced the evidence to persuade an appeal Inspector that South Oxfordshire District Council’s housing land supply was below three years. This was necessary because the site is in a parish with a made Neighbourhood Plan. The appeal was allowed as a result.
