Pegasus Group were instructed to provide planning advice and project management services for a development of 106 new homes, community woodland, and formal play space on a greenfield site within a village in Oxfordshire.
Pegasus Group assisted on phase 1 of development at this site via a planning application and successful appeal for 68 homes on behalf of Bellway Homes Thames Valley in 2018. Following this Bellway instructed Pegasus Group to assist on the second phase of development for 106 houses. By contrast to phase 1, phase 2 was a site allocated by the neighbourhood plan and therefore Pegasus Group provided assistance to ensure the proposal achieved the original principles and aspirations of the neighbourhood plan allocation but also allowed for a deliverable development which required a degree of flexibility on the original allocation.
To achieve a successful outcome, Pegasus Group assisted in the pre application process with the Council and EIA screening which generated positive feedback, and assisted in reacting to and accommodating feedback from the urban design officer, and the housing officer on housing mix. The detailed full planning application has now received a resolution to grant planning permission, and the s106 agreement is currently being worked on. Once permission is granted, it will deliver a high-quality development which will provide housing and facilities which will benefit the village as a whole.
