The site contains 26 garages organised in 3 blocks set around a central area of hardstanding, access via a narrow lane of approximately 3.0 to 3.5 metres wide and 40 metres long. The surrounding area is characterised by mature terraced and semi-detached 2-storey houses, and detached and semi-detached bungalows, with a wide variety of architectural styles.
The approved development creates 7 new family homes; all which will sit subserviently and comfortably within the existing context. This has been accomplished by minimising the scale of the development with respect to the surrounding
residential dwellings, cutting into, angling down and reducing height at the points closest to the adjacent properties.
The new homes seek to provide a high-standard of design and living whilst avoiding overlooking and overshadowing.
