Town and Country Planning
HPP ensures affordable housing requirement is removed due to viability.

25 August 2015 |

Outline planning permission has been secured by HPP for the erection of up to 61 dwellings on land to the rear of Stratton Road, Swindon. Swindon Borough Council (SBC) accepted HPPs arguments that affordable housing could not be delivered within a viable proposal. This was due to the fact that there were a number of abnormal costs associated with the site which related to issues such as contamination, acoustic mitigation, foundations/piling, concrete removal, drainage and foul water connection and the necessity to purchase two existing dwellings to allow for the formation of a vehicular access. Negotiations with SBC have been ongoing for a considerable amount of time, therefore HPP were delighted with the outcome.
