Consent for 250 dwellings in West Sussex

On behalf of Gleeson Strategic Land, we are delighted to have been part of the consultant team that has helped gain outline consent for 250 new houses, at Bilsham Road, Yapton, in Arun district. FPCR undertook the landscape and visual assessment for the scheme, and advised on the landscape strategy. The site lies immediately adjacent to a former canal, and conservation area. Photomontages, produced by FPCR, helped to demonstrate how the scheme could be successfully assimilated into the area, without significant detriment to the landscape character and the setting of the conservation area.

We also prepared a Green Infrastructure Strategy to convey detail on the character and potential benefits of the proposed landscaping as part of the outline application.

FPCR were also part of the consultant team responsible for submitting a planning submission for 300 further homes on the immediately adjacent site, at Drove Lane, on behalf of Landlink Estates – this outline application is still awaiting determination.
