Community Infrastructure Needs

Community Infrastructure Needs

The need (or not) for new schools, health centres and other community facilities has become a hot topic in residential planning applications. Our client, Peel was asked to contribute significant sums towards new social facilities in Ellesmere Port and appointed Regeneris to more closely assess local health, education and community needs.

Our evidence was used at Planning Inquiry and accepted by the Inspector as a reasonable assessment of need. Requests from the Council for financial contributions were subsequently reduced and the development proceeded.
