The Planning Consent provides for an Outline Application for the erection of 3 detached dwellings under application 06/2016/0188, however, one unit has already been sold off from the development on the former tennis court. This provides for the creation of 2 substantial detached properties in the front garden area. The application does not cover any of the reserved matters, notably access, appearance, scale, layout, landscaping, waste or drainage facilities and therefore these will have to be approved with the Local Borough Council prior to commencement of works.

The development does however, provide considerable opportunity for amendment for either the demolition of the existing house and the creation of 4 new dwellings or subsequent workings of such.
