Yew Tree Farm, Crouchley Lane, Lymm – Warrington Council

Emery Planning was appointed to provide planning advice in relation to a site in on the edge of Lymm and worked closely with Barnes Walker and Dave Gowen Design in securing planning permission for the redevelopment of farm buildings for 6 dwellings. The site is within the designated Green Belt and the redevelopment of the agricultural buildings was inappropriate development within the Green Belt. However, Warrington Council agreed that there were the ‘very special circumstances’ necessary to justify the grant of planning permission, including reference to a Fallback Position for a prior notification scheme, and that the high-quality design concept would make a positive contribution to the area.
