I first came across Charlcombe Homes in 2009 in connection with land that I own at Lansdown, Bath. We came to an arrangement for them to apply for planning consent for five houses, which they did extremely professionally, resulting in permission being granted under delegated authority. This led to a further arrangement, on a joint venture basis, for Charlcombe to develop the site, which they are currently doing. I have found them to be straightforward and open in our dealings and flexible in tailoring arrangements to suit my particular requirements. Both parties now look forward to the conclusion of the development in 2015 to our mutual benefit.
