In accordance with current NPPF Policy the protection and enhancement of existing valued landscape character is given great weight in planning decision making. The 23 unit redevelopment of a 1.2ha former animal rescue centre has been designed in a courtyard format within the existing reinforced wooded landscape enclosure and linked wetland habitat. The application submitted by Planning Resolution on behalf of Cavello Homes Ltd was supported by the DA LVIA landscape report with emphasis on long term landscape management to ensure full integration of the proposal into the Green Belt setting within the client retained outer land.  DA is working on many sensitive planning sites across southern UK where a special case must be made for successful outcomes.
