Boyer secured planning permission for the demolition of an existing dwelling and redevelopment to provide a 19 bed specialist care home. The proposals were developed with a specialist care home operator delivering contemporary and new build care developments focused on high needs specialist memory care.

Boyer successfully overcame a number of concerns raised by officers, in particular questions surrounding which use class the proposals fell within and whether a contribution towards affordable housing should be secured. Boyer were able to demonstrate that recent case law, and the Council’s affordable housing guidance, confirmed that a financial contribution was not appropriate in this instance.
