Marple Dale Care Home, Stockport
Seddon Developments Ltd
Through proactive engagement with the local planning authority and the local community, P4 led on the redevelopment of a former care home within the Green Belt. The key challenge was to demonstrate that the development of previously developed land in the Green Belt on a visually screened site, which was located adjacent to operational care home buildings. The project involved close liaison with local residents who raised concerns about the principle of development and ensuring continued access along a privately owned access road. Through proactive working with our client and the stakeholders involved, the community’s concerns were addressed, with the application being hailed as an exemplar of community consultation when approved at planning committee.
