On behalf of Provincial Homes, PWA Planning secured full planning permission for the erection of a single large detached home, as well as two semi-detached dwellings on a vacant piece of former garden land in Macclesfield.


What we did


PWA Planning secured full planning permission for two alternative development schemes related to what was a ‘missed’ opportunity within a highly sought after residential environment in Macclesfield. The site formed part of the rear garden of a traditional large dwelling, around which more recent developments had been undertaken. Although a ‘backland’ development, working with the architect and the developer, PWA were able to identify schemes which could address and respond to the site constraints. PWA successfully negotiated with the council on issues including residential amenity, visual impact and site access; these were successfully overcome. Strong local housing values meant that the scheme was a success for the developer and returned additional value to the landowner.
