A pre-application was submitted for change of use from Agricultural to Residential. Construction of 25-35 mixed 2-5 bedroom dwellings with associated amenities, with a positive response that would indicate that 29 dwellings would be approved on the site. Design of the buildings will need to recognise and reflect local distinctiveness and be sensitive to conserve local features and architecture.
The comments from the pre-application offered solutions to issues rather than negative feedback, this would suggest with the correct design, more development could be achieved.
Full pre-application report available on request.
