Sample Portfolio Projects

Rural / Agricultural

Provision of planning advice to potential purchaser of a Farm within Fife advising on the potential alternative land use to secure added value, eg residential / holiday chalets and the potential to redevelop farm steadings and the farmhouse. Progress completed a review of the landholding and provided clear advice, in consultation with the development plan and council officers to provide the potential purchaser with a clear understanding of the likelihood of success of securing consent to add value to the land purchase and ensure a viable purchase.

Materials Recycling/Enforcement Appeal / Green Belt

Progress advised Bedrock Plant Hire, South Lanarkshire preparing an appeal against enforcement action taken in relation to previous landfill / material recycling activity and failure to deliver the required land remediation. Progress was successful in demonstrating that the enforcement action was unreasonable and unjust and secured a substantial extension to the time period to complete works and return the site to agricultural use. The successful appeal has secured the business going forward and retained jobs. The site is located within the Green Belt and Progress is advising on potential alternative land use for the site following the cessation and withdrawal of the current use.

House in the Countryside

Progress is currently providing advice to a Client who is seeking to secure a new residential house on a small-holding in Fife. The small holding currently benefits from a residential unit which is owned and lived in by our Clients parents. The need for a new property results from the parents being unable to actively run and manage the unit and the extension of our Clients contracting business which requires the use of the site in tandem with their aspirations to create a self sufficient sustainable smallholding with a market garden for personal and commercial use. Progress has prepared a detailed pre-application submission to the Council setting out a clear planning and business case to justify the propose property and to seek formal response from the Council to inform a future planning application.

Busy Bee’s Nurseries (Nursery / Change of Use)

Progress has acted as planning advisor to Busy Bee’s children’s nursery since early 2013. In this time we have secured an extension to their nursery in Newport against significant organised resistance from neighbours. In addition we have advised on the progression of a change of use, and extension / major alterations to a property in Strathkinnes to be opened as a new childcare provision in early 2015. Central to representing a childcare provider of this nature is the ability to pull together an application which clearly demonstrates the need for the provision and the ability of the use to be compatible with neighbouring residential environments. Amenity is key and clear statements and evidence in relation to noise, transportation, green travel plans and privacy are critical to success.

Edgemor (Whistleberry) Ltd (New Retail)

Out of town retail Progress was successful in securing planning permission for a new retail terrace within an area of surplus car parking / hardscape within Whistleberry Retail Park, South Lanarkshire. The site is out of town retail and the application was supported by a retail statement clearly demonstrating the sequential case for approval. Consent was granted in 2013 adding value to our Client’s asset and retail portfolio.

Lifetime Energy Limited (renewables /wind energy) Wind Energy

Progress is advising Lifetime Energy on a planning strategy to secure planning permission for their proposed roll out of new generation wind energy throughout Scotland. The technology seeks to generate power from low height lattice technology rather than traditional turbines and is currently untested within the UK. Negotiation with the Council is ongoing to agree methodologies to enable technical considerations which are as yet untested in the real environment to be conditioned / demonstrated sufficiently to enable planning permission to be issued. Progress has advised on the information package that will be required to support any future applications and the level of information that will be acceptable in order to clearly demonstrate the effectiveness of the technology such that Council’s will be able to recommend approval for planning permission in due course.
