A detailed planning consent has been granted for a detached two-storey three-bedroom house with a gross internal area of approximately 1220sq.ft.. The house will have a garden that extends to the south-west of the property whilst also surrounding the new house. The house will also have two on-site parking spaces to the north of the house and countryside views to the east. The ground floor will have a hall, cloakroom/WC, storage, kitchen, dining area and lounge. The first floor will have a landing, further storage space, three bedrooms, one En-suite and one family bathroom. Brick walls will sit under a composite pitched slate roof with gable ends and UPVC windows. Glazed doors in the south facing side elevation will lead to the garden. The plot sits on the edge of the town in a reasonably quiet residential location with easy access to the link road and within walking distance of the Willows Shopping Centre.
The Site
The plot is approximately 365sq.m. which includes the garden area of around 257sq.m., the driveway of 38sq.m. and the house footprint. The plot has been cleared. The plot is relatively level where the new house will sit. There is a raised tier bank to a timber panel fence which runs along the western boundary of the plot. The garden extends to the south-west of the new house. An existing Devon bank style boundary is to be retained. A new vehicle access will be created to the north of the plot for tandem parking. The road from which the new access will be created has a 30m.p.h. limit with traffic calming measures. An ecological assessment and FRA have been completed.
