Permission Granted for three houses IN GREEN BELT -  former cattery site, chadderton, oldham imagePermission Granted for three houses IN GREEN BELT -  former cattery site, chadderton, oldham image
After obtaining outline planning permission for three detached houses we are pleased to have obtained detailed planning permission for three larger houses with generous gardens.  During the course of the planning application the Council imposed a Tree Preservation Order on the site, but with a detailed arborist report produced by Mulberry TMC the issue was successfully addressed.  A detailed landscape scheme was also produced by The Plant Room which proposed a range of native trees throughout the site to compensate for those that were to be removed.  Ecological enhancements were proposed in the form of bird and bat boxes.

Working positively with experienced Oldham Council Planners resulted in agreement being met with regards to planning conditions that met the strict planning tests. Initially the Council planned to remove all permitted development rights for extensions, outbuildings and alterations, but after discussing Government policy and recent appeal decisions, it was considered that such a condition was not necessary. This means that future residents will be able to extend their houses using permitted development rights as well as small outbuildings without having to apply for planning permission.

The site is located within the Green Belt where development is tightly controlled. The Council's Planning and Highway Officer's both agreed that access to the site was safe and would result in much needed housing within the Borough.
