What our clients think of us

The former Riverside High School site is located to the west of Radcliffe town centre and has been vacant since 2015. The site, which was cleared in 2021, provided an opportunity to delivery for much needed housing development in Bury. 

Marton Estate is an 11 hectare Site situated in the Fylde-Blackpool periphery strategic location for development, which was identified in the Local Plan. The Site was allocated for mixed use development to fulfil growth objectives for the Borough. Outline planning permission had previously been granted on the Site for the development of 265 dwellings and 1.5 hectares of employment use, however development did not come forward and the permission expired before a Reserved Matters Application was submitted. Homes England subsequently acquired part of the site to help deliver much needed housing development in Fylde.


Baxters Lane is a vacant industrial site in the east of St Helens. Hive was commissioned to prepare and submit a full planning application for the development of 28 dwellings for affordable rent along with associated access, parking and landscaping. 

Lancots Lane is a 4.5 hectare unallocated brownfield site in the heart of the urban area of St Helens. The Site was previously occupied by chemical works at a time when the east of St Helens was predominantly industrial. This part of St Helens has changed significantly in the past 10 years and is now a focus for housing development.
