The property currently comprises a roughly cleared site with the foundations of the previous building and a number of shrubs. The site was formerly a parsonage which suffered fire damage in 2005 and was subsequently partly demolished.
The site is generally level and the total area of the site is approximately 0.12 acres (0.048 hectares) in size. Access to the site is via Wilberforce Way. The scale of surrounding dwellings is mainly two storey with private gardens.
The site was granted planning permission on 19 May 2020 for ‘Outline application for the erection of 2 no. two storey houses with associated car parking and amenity space.’ under application number 20200009.
The planning permission provides for the erection of two dwellings. The proposed units are semi-detached, each with a private garden and private parking space, accessed directly off Wilberforce Way. It is anticipated that the new dwellings will match the architectural style of the surrounding properties. Size, scale, layout and appearance will be determined in the reserved matters application.
