About The Acorn Group


Sites with planning permission for new houses are few and far between; even more so in the London suburbs. This particular site forms part of Fort Halstead - a Government defence and research facility. Currently undergoing decommissioning, the wider site has planning permission for 450 residential units, 300,000sqft of commercial space, a hotel and community centre. Our clients acquired the existing staff housing and ancillary accommodation several years ago, and have undertaken a piecemeal break-up programme.

The former officer's mess, tennis court and changing rooms were unsuitable for continued or alternative use, and as such planning permission was secured for nine new 3 & 4 bedroom houses.

Despite our marketing taking place during the deepest of the Government lockdowns, we were able to generate several competitive offers for the site. Terms were agreed with a private house builder, contracts exchanged expeditiously and the matter completed in August 2020.
