Pegasus Group led on the preparation and management of an outline planning application for a care village in Hampshire on behalf of Perbury Developments Ltd.
Proposals for the scheme include a care home building/ community hub containing either 65 care beds or 48 extra care units and core facilities, and 101 extra care units set in a parkland setting with the retention and strengthening of landscaped boundaries to Flexford Nature Reserve, Trodds Copse and the Monks Brook.
The majority of the site was used for industrial and commercial activities for many years, so a Certificate of Lawfulness for the existing use was obtained to secure the status as previously developed land. The planning application overcame issues including location outside of the settlement boundary, within a Local Gap, loss of employment, close proximity to a SSSI, and potential flooding concerns.
Pegasus Group produced supporting documentation for planning, landscape, economic benefits and public consultation.
Following a resolution to grant outline planning permission at the Southern Area Planning Committee of Test Valley Borough Council, work has now been completed on the S106 Legal Agreement and the decision notice has been issued, formalising the permission.
