Client praises Saxonby’s Land & Planning Services initiative
A Shropshire homebuilder that launched an initiative earlier this year to help smallholders, landowners and homeowners realise their land’s potential has received praise from its most recent client.
Land owned by local residents and business people Charles and Sarah Lloyd at Station Road, Baschurch will be developed into 20 homes by Shrewsbury based Saxonby including 14 for rent and six available to purchase through shared ownership under the Help-to-Buy scheme. The combination of flats, bungalows, two, three and four bedroom houses is due for completion in March 2016.
Commenting on Saxonby’s Land & Planning Services operation, Charles Lloyd said: “It has been a very smooth ride so far. James and the team at Saxonby have kept us very well informed at each stage of the process. Their professional approach, knowledge of the planning regulations, timely response to any questions or concerns raised and excellent customer service have been second to none.
“I hope this offering of affordable housing to local people such as young couples, will encourage them to stay in Baschurch and continue to support the long term life and infrastructure of the village,” he added.
Commenting on the response to Saxonby’s Land & Planning Services, director James Wood said: “We had an idea when this additional arm to the business was launched at the beginning of 2014 that it might prove to be popular. Well, we’ve exceeded our expectations and the response has been superb! Although the enquiries continue to be wide-ranging in nature, the service we have provided to Charles Lloyd is fairly typical of the other land development projects we are working on.”
Saxonby is particularly interested in land that has been refused planning permission as well as historic failed applications, which can be appropriately reviewed and promoted through the appeal process.
