Planning Permission and Sale of Holden's Mews
Becoming a Rural Practice Chartered Surveyor includes a range of different challenges. As Ian explains, you can transform derelict land into thriving resenditail areas.
We got in touch with Ian to tell us more about this exciting development:
'The yard had been derelict for at least 10 years, having been used as a builders yard, timber yard, riding stables and storage area for over 100 years.
It extended to 0.66 acres, had restricted access, limited services, bats and slow worms on site, a listed building next door and 2 old oak trees won the boundary, which were subject to Tree Preservation Orders. It turned out that the historic use of the site had also caused contamination of the soils.
With the appropriate reports from an ecologist, transport planners , arboriculturalist, historic buildings expert and an architect we obtained planning permission for 5 dwellings on the property and then negotiated the sale to a local developer'
