CLIENT: Barwood Land and Estates Ltd
DATE: October 2014 – Ongoing


CCL was instructed as lead planning advisors and consultants for Barwood Land’s proposed development of 250 new homes on greenfield land in Brentwood, Essex.  The work has involved all aspects of site promotion, environmental impact assessment screening and preparation of the suite of planning application and supporting technical evidence, working with other specialist sub-consultants.


CCL’s work is ongoing but has resulted in a positive environmental impact assessment screening opinion such that no EiA is required for the proposed development.  The site has also been identified and allocated for residential development in the emerging Draft Brentwood Borough Local Plan and is proposed to be released from Green Belt as part of the plan-preparation process.


CCL added value to the project through extensive and dedicated senior time inputs leading all areas of the planning work undertaken.  The preparation of effective representations, case building (to allow release from Green Belt and identification of the site for residential development in the Local Plan) has helped move the project towards a full planning application and to position it for a positive determination during 2017/18.
