Hawksmoor have been involved from the inception of this large strategic site. Our clients, Commercial Estates Group, have promoted the site for 8 years, which has culminated in a Resolution to Grant Planning Permission by Charnwood Borough Council in November 2014, in advance of the Adoption of the Core Strategy.
The site will deliver some 4,500 new homes, 3 primary schools, a reserved site for a secondary school, a district centre, 2 local centres, significant areas of open space and up to 13 hectares of employment land.
Our role has involved the following tasks during the last 8 years:
- Project Management of Core Team in delivery of key tasks to support the application
- Regular meetings with Charnwood, Leicester City and County Council Officers through Steering Group and Technical Sub Group meetings to identify and overcome project issues
- Liaison Group meetings with key stakeholders, Ward Members and Parish Councils both pre and post resolution to permission. Continued community liaison is seen as a very important role by our clients in shaping new communities
- Section 106 negotiations
- Land and future marketing strategy.
