At Park Lane Homes we’re looking for new & exciting projects, so if you have land (whether or not you think it has development potential) we would love to talk to you. It doesn’t matter if it’s an individual plot, a site which will accommodate a number of new homes, an existing house with surplus land or buildings which are ripe for conversion. Our land team will manage the process from planning application through to planning permission and all in between.
Our land consultancy secures great planning permissions and makes the selling of residential development land a straightforward process. A simple agreement with each land owner will ensure that we will pick up all of the costs in obtaining planning permission. Working in partnership with our land surveyors, planning consultants and architects we will quickly assess the viability of a site in both planning and value terms. We focus on prime locations in the principle towns and villages in North and West Yorkshire, we are always interested in acquiring new sites, and we have a proven track record of success in obtaining successful planning permissions.
A 12.33 acre development site secured on an option and capable of accommodating around 130 new homes. Identified as a PAS (Protected Area of Search) site, the land has been earmarked by Leeds City Council as a future housing site
Following the approval by our clients of an agreed planning strategy, and in partnership with Redrow Homes an outline planning application promoting the site will be submitted to Leeds City Council in quarter three of 2016.
Amounting to some 6.25 acres and secured by the agreement of an option, this site, which will accommodate between 35 and 40 dwellings has been submitted to Leeds City Council.
The submission is in the form of a representation to the Local Development Framework Site Allocations Plan. This is an excellent potential residential site in a highly sustainable location
Following agreement with the land owner, this is an additional site which has been submitted to Leeds City Council in the form of a representation to the Local Development Framework Site Allocations Plan in November 2016.
This parcel of potential residential development land occupies an area of some 4.25 acres in a highly sought after village where demand and need for housing remains consistently high.
Situated between Bardsey and East Keswick in a delightful rural location this site had the benefit of an initial planning approval (obtained by others) for the conversion of the original farm buildings to form three dwellings. The three dwellings were in conflict with one another and as a result the site was cramped and dominated by parking. We therefore obtained planning permission to reduce the number of dwellings to two which would each then be of better size than the original approvals and both would occupy much improved gardens.
Both of the properties were four bedroomed family homes, they each had a double garage and south facing gardens.
Located on the edge of the village backing onto the open countryside this plot was originally occupied by a single storey detached home in a plot which was sufficient to accommodate these two large four bedroomed family homes. The properties ultimately offered excellent accommodation with superb gardens, both of which were in excess of 40m in length.
These outstanding Victorian style family homes in this popular Wharfedale village were built out in two phases and are situated in a fantastic setting across a stream and behind an area of mature woodland. The two separate elements were the result of two planning applications and cooperation with the Parish Council, securing consent for ninelarge new homes carefully and sympathetically designed to reflect the local character in a Victorian style.
The acquisition of this site initially involved the purchase of a dilapidated public house, the demolition of which was recognised through the conservation area assessment as a benefit, it really was an eyesore! There were a couple of other pubs nearby and the loss of this one was not considered to be the loss of a community asset. In spite of the conservation area status consent to demolish quickly followed and planning permission was granted for six family homes. Four of those new homes were semi-detached, two were detached and all six offered four good bedrooms with garaging and gardens.
This proved an interesting and tricky site to develop in light of its position within the Boston Spa conservation area. There were protected trees on site, a listed building to one side and a private road to the other. Careful and thoughtful design of the positioning and appearance of the buildings secured the grant of planning permission without any adverse impact upon the conservation area or the protected trees which largely surrounded the site. Both of the homes offered excellent accommodation over three floors, the gardens were distinct features of each property and the village itself with its riverside setting is one of the most popular in the district.
This site is a good example of the successful parcelling up of unwanted garden space providing an unexpected great sale price to each of the owners. Three separate planning applications delivered these four homes. Initially the central two plots were granted consent and after that successful outcome we were approached by the owners of the two adjoining plots asking if we could obtain planning permission and in turn acquire those plots from them. We agreed terms, achieved two further planning permissions and a site which was initially anticipated to provide just two new homes ultimately provided four in all.
Located toward the western end of Collingham in an elevated location with views over the Wharfe valley this site proved to be a challenging project from start to finish. From both a planning and construction perspective the development required the construction of a significant retaining structure enabling the filling of a long term disused quarry. Three individual new homes followed which all offered accommodation over three floors in a gated setting and an area of amenity woodland which extended from the site down to the banks of the river Wharfe.
Ideally situated between Thorner and Shadwell this rural conversion scheme provided a total of eight individual dwellings in a hill top position with open views over the surrounding countryside. Planning approval granted consent for the change of use and conversion of a significant number of farm buildings to form six barn conversions together with the alterations, renovation and redevelopment of two existing farm houses. Each property was a family sized house, and all of them had excellent gardens and adjoining paddocks.
This was a significant green field site which was Allocated for housing in the former Leeds Unitary Development Plan, that Allocation formed part of a phase of land releases to determine when development would occur. A total of fourteen dwellings gained consent, positioned away from a nearby water course and set at varying levels to reflect the challenging topography of the site. Three, four and five bedroomed homes were included with garaging, gardens and a landscape buffer to form an appropriate transition between the domestic gardens and the adjoining fields and green belt.
Two very significant detached homes
This site consisted of an unusually large garden facing north over the adjoining countryside and situated on the edge of this popular village in a conservation area with protected trees both on and off site nearby.
The large garden was partially occupied to one side by a small detached house in need of modernisation and in addition it had the benefit of planning permission (by others) for one further small detached property tucked away on the opposite side of the plot.
The original dwelling and its additional consent could hardly be described as maximising the use and value of the land and we therefore returned to square one with a new planning application which eventually delivered two very large detached homes of around 4400 and 5600ft2 respectively.
The completion of those new homes went on to win a national award via Premier Guarantee for the best small development in the country.
This site adjoined the open countryside and the prospect of planning permission was complicated by the fact that an element of the site was located in flood zone 3. Our planning proposals included the elevating of the site to avoid flood risk, the formation of an off-site flood storage area and the construction of a bund to protect nearby existing homes … a complex series of proposals which provided a community benefit and helped to secure planning permission.
Five substantial detached family houses, all with double garages and great gardens which all had open views over the adjoining fields.
These exceptional family homes on the fringe of Thorner backing onto the open countryside and green belt were developed in two phases with a number of those new homes having the benefit of an adjoining paddock. The two parcels of land were acquired from the same owner and planning permission was gained as a result of two separate planning applications. Together they delivered a “joined up” buffer zone which formed a landscaped area creating an appropriate transition between the domestic gardens and the adjoining countryside.
Situated on the edge of the village adjoining Scarcroft golf course this outstanding development consisted of thirteen homes of various styles and sizes having been granted planning permission after the demolition of redundant buildings. The project was developed in two phases and involved the construction of a new bridge which crossed over an existing water course.
