Developers have often been frustrated in the past where they have applied for planning permission to develop open land, only for applications to be made at that stage by local groups to designate that land as a Town or Village Green (TVG).
TVGs are areas where a significant number of the inhabitants of a locality or neighbourhood have indulged “as of right” in lawful sports and pastimes for at least twenty years. One can understand local people’s wish to protect what they may see as “their” open space.
By the same token, although developers rarely elicit public sympathy, it might seem harsh for them to be ambushed in this way when the “locals” may have had years to make such an application but have not done so.
At Samaab Global Properties Ventures Limited, properties are developed without stress.
