HOUSING – HYNDBURN
The site is currently occupied by a haulage contractor who is keen to relocate and expand his operation. It is on the margin between the 19th century housing and open fields. The proposals seeks to create a mixed development of different family sized homes, detached and semi-detached. The heart of the site is opened up creating a communal but protected play area for the residents with existing established trees retained providing a maturity to the development. The proposed houses respond to its setting. Heights are restricted to be no taller than the neighbouring houses, however the full height is utilised with ‘room in the roof’ accommodation maximising the views.
