Pegasus Group has successfully secured Reserved Matters consent on behalf of Barratt David Wilson Homes to build 650 new homes in Cringleford, Norfolk.

The scheme comprises a mix of two, three and four-bedroom properties and will include 215 affordable homes as well as a range of open space uses, land for a new primary school and a local centre.

Pegasus Group provided planning services and worked closely with the Local Planning Authority at South Norfolk to successfully negotiate permission under delegated powers.

Ed Durrant, a principal planner based in Pegasus Group’s Cambridge office, said:

“It was a great achievement for all involved that the Council had the confidence to allow this Reserved Matters application to be determined under officers’ delegated powers, which is quite unusual for applications of this scale.

“This was only possible because the applicant recognised the need for and allowed us (along with the rest of the project team) to undertake diligent pre-application work, including an effective public consultation strategy that involved discussions with the parish council. This enabled us to build a positive working relationship with officers that resulted in the approval of this high-quality proposal by officers within the deadlines agreed with the applicant. We are now helping the applicant to clear the pre-commencement conditions so that work can commence on delivering these new homes without delay.”
