Ponderosa Park – Planning Appeal in Green Belt

We acted for the owners of Ponderosa Park in relation to a planning appeal for a Continuing Care and Retirement Community in a green belt location in Kirklees. There was a lengthy public inquiry which involved extremely complex planning issues where the owners had to demonstrate “very special circumstances” justifying the development in green belt. It was an appeal of such significance that the Secretary of State made the decision. During the inquiry, our charities and real estate teams worked together with our planning team to add vital expertise.
