Boyer success in St Albans

Boyer Planning Twickenham, working on behalf of Linden Homes (Chiltern) and Wates Developments, have successfully achieved a resolution to grant for a reserved matters scheme, designed by John Thompson & Partners, providing 150 homes on a former playing fields site in St Albans.

We have been involved throughout the design development - from preparation of a pre-acquisition report to the project management of the application submission, up to determination within the client’s stated timescales. In the process, we successfully overcame a number of planning issues including moving archaeological remains!

We were also heavily involved in the extensive pre and post submission consultation exercise with key stakeholders which resulted in Officer support at both the District & County level with only a very small number of objections and no-one speaking in objection at Committee. This was recognised by the clients as a significant achievement, given the controversial nature of the original outline application.
