The ethos of our development has always been to enjoy the rural context of the land. To that end we have increased the public green space from the previous application so that it now meets the council’s “strategic” as well as their “local” requirements.
We are keen to retain as many of the boundary trees and hedgerows as possible. Green space will be used to provide a buffer between the new development and existing nearby residential streets. The central hedgerow has now been retained and incorporated into the character of the development, and breaks in the hedge line have been kept to a minimum. We have increased outdoor provision for young people. Our new proposals include a multi-use games area as well as a separate children’s play area.
We will continue to provide footpath connections and a new emergency-only driveway between the Inland Homes development (currently being considered at appeal) and the Bellway development.
