Tom Cobleigh Pub Group
Ashall Town Planning Consultants were appointed as sole Planning Consultant to the Tom Cobleigh Pub Group, when over a 4 year period they built over 30 new pub / restaurants from the ground up, which included brownfield and greenfield locations.
They also significantly invested in a further 30, incorporating extensive alterations.
We also acted as Project Coordinators, providing the Directors of Tom Cobleigh with regular weekly updates and a single point of contact for all involved in the developments, including architects, surveyors and other professional consultants.
One example is when they wished to develop a new site at a former farmhouse at Four Crosses, Hatherton, in the Adopted Green Belt.
The local planning authority, South Staffordshire District Council considered the proposal to be contrary to both Local Plan and national Green Belt Policy.
Having evaluated the planning history in detail, Ashall Town Planning Consultants were able to convince the planning officer that the scheme would be acceptable.
We also cited examples of other similar schemes developed in Green Belt locations throughout the UK.
These were both significant factors in obtaining a successful planning consent.
