All houses are provided with generous private rear gardens of at least
75sqm accessed from the living/dining rooms.
The houses front on to a communal open green space incorporating car
parking, pedestrian access, existing mature trees and a children’s play
area. New planting in this area will supplement the existing planting and
contribute to the local ecology and biodiversity.

The houses are set back from the communal open space to provide
planted defensible space and south-facing courtyards through which the
houses are entered.

Planning History

A planning performance agreement was undertaken for the development
which facilitated close working with the Local Planning Authority
throughout the design process.
Four meetings were held with planning officers prior to the planning
submission including an early introductory meeting in September 2015
prior to undertaking design work to establish officersâ’ initial observations
about the site.
The planning application was submitted in February 2016 and full
planning permission was granted in June 2016.
