The Forge, Raskelf

Saddington Taylor helped Ambleside Homes secure full planning permission for the construction of 4no. high-quality dwellings, car parking and associated infrastructure within the side and rear garden space of ‘The Forge’, a residential property located in the heart of Raskelf village, near Easingwold.

The application was submitted following pre-application discussions with Planning Officers, the County Council’s Highways Engineer and neighbouring residents, which resulted in several design changes to the scheme, including reorienting and reducing the scale of the proposed dwellings to respect neighbouring residents.

Planning Officers’ found the scheme to be policy compliant in all respects and approved the application under delegated authority in December 2016.  Since that time, all pre-commencement conditions have been cleared, the development has been completed and the plots have been sold and are now occupied.

Jonathan Saddington worked particularly closely with Peter Mandefield on the project, who commented that:

“Jonathan is in a different league, his friendly relaxed approach belies a huge breadth and depth of planning knowledge and wisdom.”
