Planning permission for new home in Littleover

PDP_3 Bedroom Home Littleover

Planning & Design Practice have successfully secured planning permission for a 3-bedroom dwelling in Littleover, Derby.

Full planning permission was sought for a residential dwelling on land within the residential curtilage of 1 Burns Close, the first in a row of terraced houses. It also proposed to create off-street parking for the new dwelling and 1 Burns Close, as well as boundary treatments and landscaping.

The proposal is consistent with guidance in the Derby City Local Plan and the National Planning Policy Framework which supports development that makes more effective use of land and residential development that is located in sustainable locations. The site is within the settlement boundary of Derby, and benefits from being in close proximity to essential services and facilities, and good access to public transport.

Derby City Council were of the opinion that the dwelling was acceptable regarding its relationship with the site and its context, its impact on the residential amenity of the surrounding residential plots, and the highway network. We worked with the Council in a positive and proactive manner to secure appropriate improvements to the proposed parking area.

The design of the property is in keeping with the surrounding properties while still having its own quirks that will allowing the property to be individual. Although the house is in a narrow plot it is designed to be light and airy making the space feel bigger than it actually is. This is done by having open stairs and skylights on the ground and first floor levels. The rear of the property includes French doors to allow a flow from indoor to outdoor living.

Not only have we developed the property on the site we have changed the boundaries to be more appealing with a wall that keeps the rear garden private from the street and the planting of trees, bushes and hedges along the side and the front of the property making it green and natural.
