It has been revealed that a planning inspector’s decision to approve 350 dwellings in Thornbury, will be challenged by South Gloucestershire Council.
For outline permission, The Cleve Park application by Welbeck Strategic Land LLP additionally included a 70-unit elderly care facility, as well as 1,150 square metres of commercial community floorspace.
From the 350 dwellings, 35% were anticipated to be affordable with 14 self-build plots.
63% of UK councils say their affordable housing need is severe, per a report published by the Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE).
A further 35% of the 141 councils that responded to a survey question said their need was moderate.
The report, (Delivering Affordable Homes in a Changing World), written and researched by the Town and Country Planning Association says that a shortage in investment in “genuine affordable housing” and “deregulation of planning” is limiting the local authorities capability in delivering the homes needed.
Per the Solicitors Regulation Authority, a law firm’s status encompasses more than just the cost in choosing a conveyancer, with the largest-ever behavioral trial on price and decision-making in legal services.
The trial exposed that 6% of customers choose the cheapest solicitor, and 1% because for value for money.
Just under 75% of the public chose a conveyancer based on the suggestions of associates. Having said this, it is maintained by the SRA that the findings “underpin its transparency agenda”, highlighting data that consumers make better decisions when a firm’s website quotes their prices.
