The successful planning approval is a testament to Arbora Homes’ ongoing collaboration with local planning authorities, statutory consultees, and residents. By actively engaging with the community, the company has been able to refine the design and layout of the development, ensuring that it aligns with the needs and aspirations of Fordham’s residents.
