We now have some indication of what this site will look like. The plan above shows the submission of the developer for the discharge of the conditions of the original consent to build 7 dwellings.

This design keeps the open aspect of the front of the Medical Practice  and sets the development back from the frontage on Vicarage Lane. Apart from the 4 bedroom  property at the back of the site, the majority of the properties are small. As such they are likely to be  ‘affordable’;. As the application is below the threshold of 15 dwellings when it becomes a requirement to provide affordable housing, this is a bit of a bonus in the fight to get more dwellings in the village that people can buy or rent.
