This year’s appeal related to a recovered appeal for 500 homes in the South Oxfordshire Green Belt. Appointed by Oxford Brookes University, TKP produced detailed evidence on the need for affordable housing and the benefits the scheme would have for local residents in dire need of an affordable home. James Stacey (Senior Director) presented the affordable housing evidence at the inquiry alongside FPCR (Landscape), Asset Heritage Consulting (Heritage), Iceni Projects (Housing Need), SWECO (Highways) and Avison Young (Planning and Housing Supply).

Appointed by Retirement Villages, TKP produced detailed planning evidence on the weight of policy and the overall planning balance. Iain Warner (Director) presented the planning case at the inquiry alongside Retirement Villages (operational matters), Barton Willmore (Housing Need), Contact Consulting (Specialist older persons need), and Lloyd Bore (landscape).
