Case Study

Manor Oak Homes promoted an infill 2.4 acre site in the village of Stone for a local landowner in the Aylesbury District. We conducted all the necessary site investigations to develop a scheme that maximised the development potential of the site, whilst remaining sensitive to the sites surroundings and on site constraints.  However, after conducting local market analysis, we chose to reduce the number of dwellings onsite in favour of larger units that were in particularly high demand in the area at that time. After a positive pre-application meeting with Aylesbury District Council, we submitted a detailed landscape-led scheme for 12 dwellings.

After meeting with the Parish Council, they chose to support our application. Feedback on our application from Aylesbury District Planning Officers was very positive leading to the scheme being approved by delegated authority. This meant that the scheme was approved far faster than the norm, so that the land could be put on the open market far sooner than the landowner expected.

We conducted archaeological trial trenching and a ground/contamination investigation to satisfy planning conditions, but also to ensure that there was no uncertainty for prospective developers looking to purchase the site. The site was sold far exceeding land values within the area. This was due to a lower density scheme with larger dwellings that was in particularly high demand in Stone.

The Freehold Interest was Sold through Strutt and Parker to Vanderbilt Homes who have built out the site in accordance with our planning permission.
