Project overview

Client: Mr Denis Lambert
Location: Spout Farm, Longridge
Sector: Residential
Project status: Planning approved

PWA planning negotiated outline planning permission for residential development of an open countryside site on the edge of Longridge.


What we did


PWA Planning advised the owner of an existing greenfield site on the edge of the town of Longridge, near Preston. Despite the open countryside location of the site, outside of the current settlement boundary, PWA were able to identify and take advantage of the five year housing supply shortfall and were then able to convince the planning authority of the ‘sustainability’ credentials of the site.

PWA prepared and submitted an outline planning application which, following detailed ongoing negotiations with officers and third parties was recommended for approval. PWA addressed Members of the Planning Committee in support of the application, which was approved unanimously.

PWA continue to assist the landowner in a development strategy, involving potential changes to the scheme to address housing market demands.


What our client said

“I engaged PWA Planning because of the professionalism and enthusiasm shown for taking my application forward. With a cool head, and a very profound knowledge of planning, Paul pooled all his resources and secured a highly controversial victory on my behalf. The ability to deliver a comprehensive plan makes the PWA team stand head and shoulders above the rest. I am deeply indebted to PWA Planning and have already highly recommended their services to several colleagues.”
