BlackSand was approached by a client wishing to downsize from a large detached house set in 1.5 acres. BlackSand secured planning consent for 2 x 3500 sq ft detached houses within the rear garden generating additional value of over £1m for the client.

Site for 9 houses, Bembridge, Isle of Wight £4.1m 2017
BlackSand was approached by the owner of a 2 acre parcel of land with beach access. The site had been refused planning consent at appeal for 8 houses. Using its planning expertise BlackSand was able to resubmit and secure planning for 9 houses based on a joint agreement with the local community to provide 5 private and 4 affordable houses.
The consent secured just under £1m for the owner client and generated £4.1m of sales for the development company introduced by BlackSand.
The development made a contribution towards the preservation of the cliff path, enhanced the AONB, and provided 4 much needed starter homes for the local community. The award winning designs have been copied on other sites across the Island which we take as a compliment.
BlackSand introduced the lender and provided a full turn-key project management service to the corporate client including designing and running the on site show house.
Site for two detached executive houses 2019 £3.2m
Blacksand was approached by a local agent who was selling a bungalow on behalf of clients at an asking price of £800,000. BlackSand identified that the site had potential for two large detached houses and secured planning consent on behalf of the clients. BlackSand funded the planning consent with an option to purchase the site at £1m subject to planning on a no result, no fee basis so the client had no exposure to any planning risk.
The site was subsequently purchased and developed for two detached houses.
Site for 3 detached houses, Sevenoaks £3.2m
