Planning And Development

Shrivenham 515

WebbPaton are specialist residential development land consultants. From an 8,000 dwelling town expansion to a single building plot, WebbPaton are here to help their rural property and farmer clients.  We have advised on small village developments  to large residential schemes.      From promoting the land through the Local Plan, negotiating the Heads of Terms, Section 106 negotiations to selling the land with planning permission.  With 25 years experience of working for landowners in Wiltshire, Berkshire, Gloucestershire, Buckinghamshire,  Oxfordshire, Milton Keynes and Swindon we have built up a reputation of being one of the leading specialists in forward development land for residential, commercial and logistics locations.

The planning system is currently encouraging development on the edge of towns and sustainable villages.  A sustainable village under the NPPF (National Planning Framework Policy) is one with a shop, pub or school.  If you think you may have suitable land please ring George Paton who will be happy to have a look and advise you of your options.   We have contacts with many local councils’ forward planning officers and know all the planning trigger points you need to meet to promote your land through the Local Plan via the SHLAA, Housing Market Assessments, NPPF, local 5 year land supply and Neighbourhood Plan.  We often work with Parish and District Councils from the start.

Farmyards, farm buildings (even portal frames) and traditional barns can obtain planning permission through the Permitted Development Rights under Class Q.  Libby Baron is happy to discuss how up to 450 metres squared can be converted to 1, 2 or 3 dwellings.

Our detailed knowledge of this area of the country has involved us in planning negotiations and  has given us specialist expertise to progress agreements with national house builders and development land promoters who are willing to promote land in the area through the planning system.  We have all the major PLC builders and land promoters coming to our office looking for opportunities.  We have negotiated deals for clients with Linden Homes, Redrow, Persimmon, Taylor Wimpey, Welbeck Land, Custom Land, Bower Mapson, Gladman, Gallagher, Barberry, Catesby, Barberry Land, David Wilson Barratt as well as many local builders.

In the last year WebbPaton has sold the following sites:

200 dwellings at Faringdon, Oxfordshire.

116 dwellings at Shrivenham, Oxfordshire.

87 dwellings at Blunsdon, Swindon.

112 dwellings at Steventon, Oxfordshire.
