Inspired design for infill plot

PDP_Infill development in Derbyshire

Planning & Design Practice are pleased to announce the granting of outline permission with all matters reserved, except access, for the construction of a new home in South Derbyshire. The proposal constitutes limited infill between existing properties.

The site is located in the Derbyshire countryside within a linear development of houses and within the curtilage of a house situated on the end of a small cluster of homes.

Whilst the outline application was submitted to determine the principle of residential development in the location, the application was accompanied by an illustrative site plan, as shown below in Figure 1, prepared by the Architectural Team at Planning & Design Practice.

It is envisaged that the key characteristics would be as follows:

  • A single dwelling of modern design and finished with locally sourced stone or brick;
  • Highly sustainable low carbon dwelling built to exacting standards;
  • Use of renewable energy and sustainable forms of heating;
  • Use of existing access to the dwelling to be widened;
  • Sufficient space within the site for the parking and turning of vehicles; and
  • Amenity space to be located to the north of the new dwelling.

The development will be sympathetic to the local character and appearance of the street scene and wider local area. Additionally, the siting of the plot will ensure no adverse impact on neighbouring amenities.

It has been successfully argued that the proposal would constitute a sustainable form of development, in accordance with the aims of the National Planning Policy Framework and Development Plan.

Gaining planning permission is a key step in almost any development.
