Former Greenwise Nurseries, Thurrock

Iceni Projects provided a strategic role in preparing the application – advising on planning, engagement, sustainable development, transport and design.

The application site was allocated as Green Belt in the adopted Local Development Framework so required the preparation of a robust Very Special Circumstances case and referral of the planning application to the Secretary of State.

This was a first-of-its-kind in Thurrock and, therefore, the site has been promoted through the emerging Local Plan as well as through the pre-application process with Thurrock Council. This meant that when the application was submitted there were no objections from either statutory or non-statutory consultees. On this scheme it was also agreed with the Local Planning Authority that the scheme was best-placed to provide off-site affordable housing to be delivered directly by Thurrock Council.

Iceni Projects provided a strategic role in preparing the application – advising on planning, engagement, sustainable development, transport and design.

The outline planning application was accompanied by a comprehensive Design Code that was prepared by Iceni Projects. This restricts what can be built in terms of building heights, frontages, materials and other key design considerations. The scheme will also be controlled through the submission of reserved matters applications.
