A detailed planning consent has been granted for a detached single storey bungalow in a desirable village location and in a relatively secluded position to the rear of other properties. The bungalow is approximately 950sq.ft with two bedrooms, bathroom, open plan lounge and dining area, kitchen, hallway and additional storage space. The plot also has a garden and parking, one space on site and two garages in an existing garage block are also included.
The Site
The site is level and clear, although it is overgrown, and is approximately 300m2. The owner wants to retain half a meter across the front of the plot where the entrance turns towards the garages in order that vehicles have more space to turn into the garages at this point. Any new owner will also benefit from this as two garages belong to this plot. The plot is somewhat narrow and elongated hence the design of the bungalow to fit comfortably into the plot. Access is from a private drive off a public highway, the drive is in the ownership of the current owners of the plot. A protected species report has been completed. The owner advises that the plot has only ever been a garden to in his living memory and he is writing to the LPA to confirm this in line with a condition of the planning consent.
