ARMSTRONG RIGG PLANNING
Site: East Anton Major Developed Area, Andover
Client: Taylor Wimpey
The East Anton Major Developed Area (MDA), is a large urban expansion area to the north-east of Andover with outline permission for 2,500 homes, employment, schools, local centres, open space and landscaping.
ARP have worked to successfully bring forward several development parcels which have ranged in size from 54 dwellings to 386 dwellings. Each parcel has brought its own particular challenges. These have included rights of way diversions, the stopping up of a level crossing and significant noise impacts from nearby rail and industrial uses.
ARP has worked to bring together relevant stakeholders including the Ramblers Association and Network Rail to reconcile competing issues in a mutually acceptable way. This has been achieved while also ensuring individual schemes adhere to the prescriptive requirements of the overarching outline permission including S106 requirements and design code.
