Dovecot Farm, Haddington

We secured Planning Permission in Principle for 113 homes on this site at appeal, contrary to the approved development plan. A subsequent further phase of 80 homes was then approved by the Council, again contrary to the approved development plan.

A key issue in delivering both phases was the need for all members of the project team were required to demonstrate compliance with requirements set out in planning policies and supplementary guidance.

All technical work was reviewed by Geddes to ensure that a fully co-ordinated submission was made to the Council. Demonstrating that the Council was not maintaining a five year effective housing land supply at all times and sustainability credentials of the location and the proposal were important considerations.

  • Geddes managed and co-ordinated the application and appeal process
  • An evidenced based submission demonstrated compliance with planning policies
  • The Council could not undermine the evidence submitted
