DLA Town Planning Ltd are pleased to announce an approved planning application for a Heritage Museum within the Green Belt for Bell Classics in Slip End. Bell Classics are a renowned company who specialise in the trading, restoration and manufacturing of high value classic cars. As part of their business expansion, Bell Classics sought a new Heritage Museum on their Hillview site.
This was initially deemed an unrealistic venture due to the site’s location within the Green Belt. However, DLA successfully argued Very Special Circumstances, citing case law examples to aid their case to achieve an approval on the site.
In 2018, DLA also successfully retained, through a retrospective planning application, 4x engineering workshops of 425m2 in size on the site.
