No5 Chambers’ Martin Kingston advises on housing project in Burton

Nurton Developments has been granted outline planning permission for ‘Branston Locks’, a new community in Burton.

Martin Kingston QC of No5 Chambers advised on the project, which will create 2,850 new homes on 50 acres of land designed to generate up to 3,000 jobs over the next 10 years. It will also include a primary school, medical facilities, food outlets, convenience stores and recreational facilities.

Nurton Developments acquired the land in 2008 and submitted the planning application in November 2012. It will deliver the commercial elements of the project, but will sell parcels of land for residential development.
