Low density housing with character

The affordable housing will consist of a mix of detached, semi-detached and terraced homes, each with its own parking and private garden. Materials will include, brick, render and horizonal timber cladding under a combination or tile and slate roofs.

The buildings will be arranged on the site in an informal arrangement in order to respect the character of this part of the town. The layout will provide substantial areas of landscaping, including retention of existing important landscape features on the site boundaries.

This proposal was initially refused planning permission and subsequently won at Appeal.
