Leisure Lakes, Southport

Leisure Lakes Ltd



The proposed redevelopment of a recreational complex, Leisure Lakes, had stalled and was subject to a planning appeal.

Urban Green supported the appeal to help secure the future of the development. Situated on a Biological Heritage site and covered by a Woodland Tree Preservation Order, the development was subject to complex planning requirements.


Working collaboratively, these were overcame through a robust woodland management programme, construction management plan and arboricultural assessment.

Redevelopment of the masterplan demonstrated more creative integration of the proposed 49 holiday homes to secure the site’s environmental value and sustainability.

Existing development plans, complex planning history and the site’s constraints and opportunities were explored to achieve a viable solution and to allow the development to move forward.


Happy Client

“We commissioned Urban Green initially for their arboriculture expertise, but following their innovative approach and level of service, we had no hesitation in extending their involvement to include Landscape Architecture. Martin and the team were instrumental in presenting a comprehensive approach to achieve the successful planning appeal which was fundamental to our business plan.”

Philip Whitter, Owner Leisure Lakes


Planning permission was secured in July 2014.
