Cowan & Co have secured outline planning permission on behalf of Kirkby Stephen Grammar School for a development of 16 new houses at the heart of Kirkby Stephen in Cumbria.
The site itself is a vacant off-site school playing field which has fallen into disuse due to the extensive playing fields readily available within the school site. The site has been vacant for a number of years and approval was secured from the ESFA and Sport England for disposal of the land. All proceeds from the sale of the land will be re-invested back into improving sport and recreational facilities at the school.
Cowan & Co worked closely with the local planning authority to secure planning approval for the development which will provide good quality new dwellings within the popular area of Kirkby Stephen and contribute to the Council’s delivery of new housing.
