Key to the development of these proposals was taking into account the characteristics of the local context and to provide only uses which would be compatible with the existing adjoining uses and as such would have minimal impact on the existing housing around the site. An existing woodland has been a key feature and characteristic of the area since it was developed along with a 19th Century neightbouring house.
The introduction of proposed improvements to the woodland secures its long term future and its retention as an important green feature within the built up area, this is also further reinforced by the creation of large public open space areas within the site which incorporate a number of the trees on site which are the subject of a tree preservation order. These items have been key to the design development and have been retained as important components of the overall development throughout the design process. The resultant proposal takes advantage of its unique woodland setting by re-establishing the existing woodland amenity, and setting the homes within this.
