Appeal won for Bagley Road, Rockwell Green, Somerset


An appeal has been granted for a residential development of up to 205 houses and 60 apartments with care, in Rockwell Green, Somerset. On behalf of Gladman Developments Limited, FPCR provided services which spanned our ecology, arboricultural and landscape architecture teams for this Outline Planning application.  Our south west ecology team based in Exeter provided advice and recommended mitigation in relation to the presence of European protected species, notably hazel dormice and bats. With input from our landscape architecture team our ecologists were able to provide practical and achievable solutions for such species; ensuring that the proposals will not only protect the existing habitats most important to these species, but also provide future enhancements throughout the design.
