In April 2017 Buckley Burnett secured a promotion agreement on a former greenbelt site that we had previously helped a client have allocated through the local plan. With the client no longer wanting to take it forward, Buckley Burnett stepped in to promote the land for the owners, engaging with the local authority through the pre application process to develop a proposal for a residential scheme and provide guidance for the marketing process.

The site was then taken to the market with offers received from several national and regional house builders. Working with the preferred purchaser, Avant Homes, we then progressed a detailed planning application based on the previous advice from Gateshead Council. Once the application was granted Avant Homes purchased the land with the site now under construction.
