Former Tudor Nurseries, Goffs Oak

We assisted Redrow Homes Eastern with a complex and protracted planning process in Goffs Oak, Cheshunt.

Who was the client?

Redrow Homes Eastern

What was the scheme?

360 dwellings, retail, older persons housing & associated open spaces

What were we doing?

s106 to Outline, Reserved Matters & Condition Discharge

What is the Status?

Reserved Matters approved, decision notice issued on 24th December 2020.

Resolution to grant outline planning permission was approved by Committee on 22 May 2018. Prior to the S106 being signed (22nd January 2020) Reserved Matters and Condition Discharge applications were prepared to expedite timescales for getting on site.

Complex S106 negotiations ensued over 17 months including attending 7 meetings with the planning authority and 2 adjacent landowner parties who also have outline resolutions to grant permission, all of which were within the Rosedale Park housing allocation. Extensive pre-application negotiations took place for the Reserved Matters and Discharge of Conditions applications, submitted in February and March 2020.

These submissions recognised the LPA’s detailed attention to design and resulted in a range of Arts and Crafts inspired dwellings alongside small retail element and homes for those over the age of 50.

Several months of discussion between the design team and the local authority culminated in the application going to committee on the 24th November 2020. The application was voted to be approved, and on the 24th December 2020 the formal decision notice for the Reserved Matters application was issued by Broxbourne Borough Council, securing planning permission for the development.
