Yew Tree Farm, Burscough

Redrow Homes

Acting for Redrow, Hive were instructed to lead the submission of a reserved matters application for 169 homes. This was the third phase of residential development at Yew Tree Farm and so it was important to ensure that consistency was achieved and we did this by working extremely closely with the design and technical teams at Redrow.

Our early work centred around planning due diligence as we needed to understand exactly what the conditional requirements of the outline planning permission were as they related to that phase of development and where the lines were drawn between what the landowner was responsible for and what Redrow needed to deal with as part of the reserved matters submission. A planning strategy was then established that saw us submitting the reserved matters application along with the discharge of a number of conditions that were required to be determined at the same time as the reserved matters.


The reserved matters application was subsequently approved by West Lancashire Borough Council and Hive were then retained to discharge all other outstanding conditions on both the outline and reserved matters applications, all of which were approved and this allowed the scheme to commence and then be occupied in a timely fashion.
