We have recently completed the sale of a large development site in Fair Oak, Eastleigh, on behalf of our client, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portsmouth to Linden Homes.

The site, which has planning consent for 72 houses, is a 7¼ acre plot of land including a new and amended junction to the road, new pedestrian links and the reconfiguration of the existing Church car park.
The principal obligations of the planning agreement included:
Entrance to site from main road
35% of the dwellings to be affordable units.
Provision of on-site open space and play area land.
Dedication of SINC land (Site of Importance to Nature Conservation).
Sustainable integrated transport contribution.
Public art contribution.
Community infrastructure contribution.
Off-site public open space contribution.
The site was put on the market at the end of 2015, attracting considerable interest and several offers from nationwide developers. Daniells Harrison provided marketing and detailed advise relating to the specific requirements of the site and the planning consent. Once offers were received we were involved in detailed and complicated negotiations on behalf of our client. As we were representing a charity we also completed a Charity Act Report on behalf of our client.
