Scope of Project

Acting on behalf of Chippindale Foods Ltd, Fordy Marshall advised on the relocation of this substantial egg packing and distribution company, introducing their new site, just off the A59 at Flaxby near Knaresborough. Acknowledging the potential of their existing part-brownfield site on the West side of Harrogate, Fordy Marshall acted in a project manager role overseeing the submission of an outline planning application for 57 residential dwellings, which was ultimately issued in May 2015. The other team of consultants included Peacock and Smith Planning Consultants and HTC Architects.

Prior to undertaking an open market sale, Fordy Marshall were successful in preparing a viability appraisal and negotiation of vacant building credit to reduce the affordable housing, finally agreed at 25% rather than 40%.

Fordy Marshall managed the open market sale campaign concluded via informal tender ultimately completing a sale to Stonebridge Homes Ltd in July 2018.

Fordy Marshall also advised on the grant of option rights over the phase 2 land, lying to the north west, extending to approximately 6 acres. A planning application has subsequently been submitted and a decision is awaited.
