Planning Permission For A Small Residential Development

27th April, 2020 by Acorus in General

Acorus Eastern Team have just received planning permission for a small residential development of 5 houses in the village of Wicken, Cambridgeshire.


Acorus consultant Brian Barrow became involved following a previous scheme which had not found favour for more albeit smaller houses. It was felt however that a mix of 3 detached and 2 semi-detached would be a better solution. It would also keep the development below a 1000m2 an important threshold for affordable housing.


The scheme submitted was in outline and made best use of the site and its open aspect to the rear. An agricultural building will be demolished and the scheme would be able to avoid boundary trees.


The application was dealt with by East Cambridgeshire District Council in less than the 8 weeks having being submitted in February and approved in mid-April, despite current difficulties.
