Steve Jenkins – Associate Partner

“We were delighted help Bargate Homes secure outline planning permission to build up to 55 new homes in the beautiful village of Overton. All homes will be individually designed for the scheme and built to their usual high standard.

The stunning development to be known as “Seven Acres” will be the ideal location for family living in a rural environment yet easily accessible for major towns and centres of employment. ”
