Acting on behalf of local client William Davis Homes, a planning application for 70 new homes on land north of Park Lane, Sutton Bonington has been approved by Rushcliffe Borough Council.
Pegasus Group provided both planning and design services for the successful application.
The design was a collaborative process, through pre-application consultation with the parish council, borough council and local residents, alongside design input from the previous landowner and an independent design review. Pegasus was able to integrate this feedback to ensure the final proposals satisfied the many stakeholders and delivered for William Davis Homes.
Wesley Bray, Director based in Pegasus Group’s East Midland’s office said: “The development provided a unique opportunity to create a new edge to Sutton Bonington, maximising the benefits of this unique site.”
Sutton Bonington is situated on the western edge of Rushcliffe, around half a mile to the east of the River Soar in rolling farmland to the south-west of Nottingham, with The Site being located on the very southern edge of the village.
The development will include a bespoke range of dwellings developed for William Davis that integrate elements of the local character. This includes 49 three, four and five-bedroom homes to be sold on the open market, and a range of affordable one and two-bedroom apartments and two and three-bedroom houses.
The layout benefits from significant areas of public open space and green infrastructure, with a central green space, St Anne’s Court, named for the parish church; a new village pond incorporating a pedestrian boardwalk; natural play areas; and, a community orchard.
Wesley Bray added: “We are delighted that the plans for Park Lane have been approved.
“The development provided an opportunity to create a residential development with a diverse choice of housing and large areas of accessible public open space to benefit both existing and future residents of Sutton Bonington. The aim was to achieve a development with a strong identity and distinct sense of place that creates a new gateway in the south of the village but also integrates with the existing community.”
Commenting for William Davis, Development Director David Dodge, added “This is one of several projects that Pegasus have successfully designed and gained consent for us over recent months. It is testament to both their ability to work with their client’s brief to maintain commerciality whilst using their creativity and tenacity to navigate the hurdles thrown up in navigating the planning system.”
