High Wycombe Town Centre

Located in the centre of the town Fulmer have secured adjoining commercial premises together with a large yard and car park which had significant redevelopment potential. Planning permission was successfully obtained for the demolition of the existing buildings and the erection of 2 blocks comprising a total of 27 no. 1 & 2-bedroom apartments.

Wooburn Green, Buckinghamshire

Fulmer purchased a former car dealership with large yard in Wooburn Green, Buckinghamshire. Following a previous planning refusal Fulmer secured planning permission for the erection of 7 no. mews style townhouses. Fulmer undertook the construction and the houses were completed and all sold in 2022.

Watford, Hertfordshire

With a joint venture partner, Fulmer acquired former commercial / industrial premises in Watford, Hertfordshire. We secured a planning permission for the erection of 3 blocks comprising a total of 81 apartments. Construction commenced in 2021 and is now build complete and sold.

Ringmer, Lewes, East Sussex

This 4.8-acre site has an extant planning permission for a care scheme / village together with affordable housing.

Despite exposure to the market there was no demand and was therefore both unviable and so undeliverable in its current form.

Fulmer Developments have co-invested in the site with Ashill Regen which has been acquired unconditionally and a planning application is currently lodged for a well-designed 53 home scheme including 23 affordable housing dwellings.

West Wycombe, Buckinghamshire

Together with a joint venture partner, Fulmer secured planning permission for the redevelopment of site for 41 dwellings (comprising 5 x 2 bed houses, 5 x 3 bed houses, 13 x 1 bed flats and 18 x 2 bed flats). Build complete and sold.

Holmer Green, Buckinghamshire

Fulmer acquired commercial premises in the Buckinghamshire village of Holmer Green. The site had a chequered planning history but following considered and pro-active engagement with local residents and stakeholders, Fulmer subsequently secured planning permission for the redevelopment of the site to provide 3 no. 4 bedroom family homes.

High Wycombe (West), Buckinghamshire

Fulmer jointly purchased former garage premises and yard in West Wycombe. After months of careful design and planning discussions we submitted and were granted planning permission for a sensitively designed residential scheme comprising 2 blocks of 12 one & two-bedroom apartments. Build complete and sold.
