We were retained to advise on a site proposed for housing in the High Weald AONB and covered by an extensive Tree Preservation Order. The site had a long planning history having been dismissed on appeal and had failed to secure an allocation in subsequent iterations of the Local Plan. Our work included undertaking a landscape appraisal and developing a landscape strategy to inform a new outline planning application for residential development. Planning permission was again refused but a subsequent appeal was upheld.
Our work in support of the appeal included:
- Preparation of a detailed landscape and visual
- Presentation of landscape evidence
- Formulation of a long term Landscape Management Plan.
