Site: Land in Elmswell, Suffolk

Client: Harrow Estates Plc and Orbit Homes

Elmswell, Suffolk

ARP are currently finalising the preparation of an outline planning application for up to 65 dwellings as a second phase to a development of 190 dwellings currently under construction by Taylor Wimpey. The proposals, which are a response to the identification of Elmswell as a focus for significant additional housing growth in the emerging Local Plan, also include for the safeguarding of land for the future delivery of a relief road, which is a longstanding aspiration for the village.


The application on behalf of Harrow Estates follows from us successfully securing outline planning consent for up to 60 dwellings on land off Borley Crescent, Elmswell in May 2017. ARP have since been retained by the site purchasers, Orbit Homes, on behalf of whom we have prepared and submitted a reserved matters application for 60 dwellings. The application raised a number of issues such as highways, landscape and drainage which ARP worked closely with officers, statutory consultees and the project consultants to successfully overcome.
