  • Strategic brownfield site application and negotiation of land deals
  • 3million sqft, 725 homes, District centre, community facilities and network of open spaces

The project centred around one of the most strategically important brownfield sites in Wales and took place on a site within the Deeside Development Zone.

We were instructed to secure planning permission for the project, and successfully did so in early 2013. We managed the outline application process as well as leading on technical challenges, analysing offers for the first parcels of land and assisting with the negotiations of land deals.

Some of the key challenges faced during the process included obtaining funding from the Welsh Assembly Government, flood mitigation, and necessary spine road construction.
