– Clarity/consistency over Green Vision for development
– Concern over local authority and sustainability requirements
– Green Vision/Measures Strategy Document (legal document)
– Local authority and developer mediation
With over 400 planning application documents with various elements reported on sustainability, there was no clear green vision for the development. This clarity of vision was a central requirement of the proposal, expected by the local authority. CGC developed a Green Vision Strategy Document which offered a toolbox approach to delivering an highly sustainable community.
Successful negotiation on behalf of Taylor Wimpey, Dorchester allowed for flexible interpretation of the Green Vision Strategy agreed with East Hampshire District Council and ensured the agreed sustainability measures would offer a practical approach. The resultant document became a significant part of the development ‘s broad strategy. CGC are now working alongside the developers on implementing the Green Measures Strategy.
Planning: September 2014 – September 2015

Over 400 documents made up the Hybrid application which lacked a focussed and consistent “Green Vision” theme drawing together all the proposal’s exemplar sustainability elements.
The Green Vision Document aimed to demonstrate to Planning Committee and Officers the key Sustainable Credentials of the proposal in line with National and Local Plan Policies and guidance.
