Boyer Planning Success in Walthamstow

16th September 2016
By Grant Leggett

Boyer has been successful in securing a unanimous resolution to grant planning permission, subject to s106, from the London Borough of Waltham Forest planning committee. The application was submitted on behalf of our client Pocket Living and will provide 45 new homes for first time buyers in this part of London, in a new part two, three and four storey building. The scheme will regenerate a brownfield site containing a vacant building and was strongly commended by the committee.

Boyer co-ordinated and steered the application through the planning process, convincing officers that the benefits of the scheme were sufficient to outweigh the need to retain the former employment use of the site, and that NPPF paragraph 22 should apply. As part of this case Boyer’s Development Economics team analysed the local office market and undertook viability testing, to demonstrate that retention of the site for employment purposes was unviable.

We are especially pleased to have secured another permission (our 8th) on behalf of Pocket and look forward to seeing the scheme built out shortly.
