Each dwelling has a private garden which is knitted into the development. The access road is lined with leafy shrubbery to provide a pleasant outlook and privacy to existing properties. The proposed cafe is at the heart of the scheme to maintain the vibrancy of the heart of the village with a small community green area. The site is flanked py protected open space, to which we have provided improved pedestrian links.
In October 2016 a pre-app was submitted for the site, which has previously seen some applications and approvals for small pockets of the site, however each of these had taken a segregated approach, not contributing to the village as a whole. The pre-app returned with positive feedback as the site also encompasses what is defined as ‘Pegswood heart of the village development area’ in the Local Plan. A full application with Listed building consent was submitted in January 2018 and after a lengthy planning process LBC was granted in March 2018 and full planning in March 2019.
