Turley secures permission for South Derbyshire village extension

Planning consultancy Turley, acting on behalf of Hallam Land Management, has secured planning permission for a new village urban extension in Derbyshire.

Permission was granted at the end of March for 75 new homes on a 3.44 hectare site in the Derbyshire village of Repton by South Derbyshire District Council. The new scheme will include 23 affordable homes, a children’s play area and a new link road.

Turley in Birmingham and Leeds provided planning and urban design advice.

Neil Woodhouse, a Senior Urban Designer at Turley in Leeds said:

“The site is a prominent location and represents a major urban extension to the village. The site was heavily constrained with access and drainage issues, but by working collaboratively with the local council we were able to develop a masterplan for the site that won the support of local officers. We are delighted with this decision.”

This application represents the second phase of a larger residential development within the village. Phase 1 of the development, which was also lead by Turley in both a planning and urban design capacity, is now being taken forward by Miller Homes who have recently submitted a Reserved Matters Application for the site. Now outline planning consent has been secured on the large Phase 2 of the development, Hallam Land Management will now seek a development partner to help bring forward the remaining parts of this exciting development.
