Planning & Design Practice is pleased to announce that planning permission has been granted for 18 new homes at land off Normanhurst Park, Darley Dale, Derbyshire for our clients Chevin Homes.

The development will provide a mix homes, including:

  • 4 x 2 bed houses
  • 7 x 3 bed bungalows
  • 3 x 3 bed houses
  • 4 x 5 bed houses

A traditional design approach is proposed, with the use of Birchover Coursed Stone and plain slate grey tiles used throughout the development, which is considered to respect the character, identity and context of this part of the Derbyshire Dales.

The site includes a number of trees protected by Tree Preservation Orders which will be incorporated into the development. A number of mitigation measures are also proposed during the construction phase including no-dig surfacing and Tree Protection Measures in order to minimise the potential for any foreseeable detrimental impact occurring to the retained trees.

The sensitive scheme has made efficient use of land in terms of maximising the number and size of unit’s deliverable on site, whilst also minimising the potential impacts on the countryside and the occupants of neighbouring properties.

The application was accompanied by a comprehensive Sustainability and Energy Statement prepared by the Planning Team setting out measures on how the development seeks to mitigate against global warming and adapt to climate change. The houses have been designed to optimise the prospect of using solar PV panels in terms of their orientation and positioning within the site. EV charging points would also be included as part of the development.
