Dukinfield Submission

Planning permission secured in Tameside for BAK Engineering

NJL Consulting are pleased to announce that outline planning permission has been secured for the proposed development of 15 new houses in Dukinfield, on behalf of BAK Civil Engineering Ltd.

The site is allocated as employment land within Tameside’s Unitary Development Plan, and NJL were brought on board to demonstrate to the Council that residential development would be appropriate in this instance.  NJL coordinated the planning application, which included an Employment Land Report and Marketing Report to show that the site was not a viable employment site and that there was no demand for employment uses in this location.  Alongside coordination of external technical reports, NJL prepared a Planning Statement and Design and Access Statement in-house, submitted the planning application to Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council and then negotiated on behalf of the developer through to determination.

The planning application was approved unanimously at committee, without the need for an appeal, which is a fantastic result given the planning policy context.
