Plans have been received to build 20 homes, half of which would be affordable properties, on land adjacent to Collygree Parc, South Road, Goldsithney, writes Lee Trewhela.

This application follows a previous outline application for a residential development of 23 dwellings, which was granted at planning appeal in 2014. 

The application has subsequently lapsed and this application seeks full planning permission for a new residential scheme that takes consideration of the matters raised within the appeal decision. It provides opportunity for the retention of significant trees on the site and no development is proposed to the far eastern boundary, in the location of a badger sett. 

The proposal would offer a variety of housing including detached, semi-detached and terraces of three, taking consideration of the site constraints and features, with the main driveway at the top section of the site providing separation from the Collygree Parc residential development. 

Parking provision is provided in designated parking areas to avoid dominance of the car immediately adjacent to each dwelling. Each dwelling would have a good-sized garden that takes consideration of neighbouring properties. Areas of green space are provided within the site with opportunity for enhanced landscape and habitat provision. 

There would be nine two-bed, eight three-bed, three four-bed properties.
