Planning permission for a new family home on land at Calderside Road, Fenton Barns.


Private Client


The application site is a previously developed site, capable of accommodating the proposed new home, in keeping with its surroundings and adjacent to existing residential properties.

Changes in national planning policy encourage a more flexible approach to new housing in the countryside and APT believes that taking a positive approach to appropriate and sustainable new development is to be encouraged. APT was retained to advocate that this development would sit comfortably with the other properties delivering an attractive solution to this gap site. 




A high quality, small scale residential development at this site would make a positive contribution to the existing cluster of homes at New Mains. It is a gap site and would sit comfortably as part of the hamlet envelope
