Site & Trees - The site comprises 0.1 ha of land adjacent to Fern Place at its junction with Plas-Mawr Road, these form the southern and eastern boundaries respectively. To the north the site is bounded by residential development. To the west the site is bound by a stone wall, followed by a small lane, beyond this is further residential development.

The application site is currently occupied by a large house that fronts onto Plas-Mawr Road and a small garage to the rear of the house. Both of these buildings are going to be retained, along with a suitability sized garden. The development of two residential dwellings is proposed to the rear of these buildings, fronting on to Fern Place, as shown in the indicative development plan .

There are several trees on site and accordingly a Tree Survey has been completed. The Tree Survey recommends that the majority of the trees are removed. Since the Tree Survey has been undertaken, one of the trees that was recommended for removal has fallen down during strong winds. It terms of topography the site is generally flat with a gentle slope at the north-eastern corner.

Scale Parameters For Detailed Design - Scale Parameters for Detailed Design
Although the application is in outline with matters reserved the following sets out the parameters within which future reserved matters application will need to be in relation to the scale of building:
Building Type Residential Dwelling
Storey Height 2 to 2.5 storeys
Height 7.5m to 9.5m
Building Width 10m to 13m
Building Depth 7m to 10m

Character & Appearance - Detailed design of the building is a reserved matter. However, it is expected that a consistent appropriate architectural language will be adopted which complements the adjacent dwellings on Fern Place. This is expected to respond to its context and will be subject to future discussion and agreement with the Local Planning Authority.

Access & Ease Of Movement - The indicative development plan (Figure 3) shows how the stone wall will be removed to provide both vehicular and pedestrian access from Fern Place onto the site. The removal of the stone wall will also increase visibility.
