Full planning application for nine retirement cottages for the over 55s on Brecon Road in Abergavenny, near to Nevill Hall Hospital.
The scheme, designed by Eric Cole Architects, included extensive landscaped grounds on site, including planting and hardscaping.
Asbri Planning advised Blue Cedar Homes through pre-application discussions with planning, conservation and landscaping officers from the Local Authority. A public consultation exercise at the local cricket club was organised and attended by Asbri, which successfully gained the support of some local residents who had previously expressed objections relating to the scheme.
Asbri demonstrated to the Authority how the proposed nature of the development, as a retirement scheme comprising of cottage-style low density dwellings, was in keeping with the site surroundings and its edge-of-settlement setting.
Asbri Planning prepared a supporting Planning Statement and the application was successfully approved at Planning Committee in timely fashion. Asbri Planning was retained to assist with the Code for Sustainable Homes and applications to remove conditions from the planning consent.
