Northern Trust Company Ltd is pleased to announce that it has successfully gained outline planning permission for up to 120 new homes on a 10 acre site off Burton Road in Gedling on behalf of the landowner.
The site is owned by Midlands Land Portfolio Limited (MLPL) the property development arm of Severn Trent, with Northern Trust acting as their planning promotion partner.
The proposed development has been the subject of extensive dialogue with Gedling Borough Council, taking the site from being within the Green Belt to an allocation within the adopted Gedling Local Plan and now with the benefit of planning permission.
Alongside 120 dwellings the development provides significant local benefits in the form of 20% affordable housing, public open space, financial contributions towards primary school provision, library and health facilities and bus stop enhancements. The planning application was submitted in December 2019 and considered at the planning committee in August 2020. Following several months of negotiations on the Section 106 Agreement planning permission was granted on 29th January 2021.
John Tootell, Strategic Land & Planning Executive at Northern Trust commented “We are delighted to have secured outline planning permission for this site, having worked closely with Gedling Borough Council and other key stakeholders over many years to bring forward these plans. This development will deliver an important allocation within the Gedling Local Plan, will provide much needed housing and affordable housing within Gedling and will provide significant investment into the local area.
The project team, led by Stephanie Eastwood at Avison Young, have done a fantastic job securing this consent. We look forward to the proposals coming to fruition.”
Adam Tustain, Senior Development Surveyor at Severn Trent explains “We’re absolutely delighted that we’ve been able to achieve this fantastic result with the expert help of both Northern Trust and Avison Young. Securing this permission not only allows us to recycle our redundant assets but means we’re able to provide new homes and jobs that will benefit the communities in which we operate.”
Stephanie Eastwood of Avison Young, planning consultants on the site added “After securing the release of the site from the Green Belt and its allocation in the Local Plan, it’s been a pleasure to continue to work with Northern Trust and its project team to develop an attractive masterplan for the site and see it through the next stage in the planning process, securing outline planning permission and moving one step closer to the delivery of quality housing and new areas of public open space.”
The site is currently the subject of a marketing campaign with discussions ongoing with a number of shortlisted parties. Luke Brafield and Matthew Handford at Fisher German are managing the disposal process.
