Planning Permission Granted for Two Detached Houses in East Grinstead, Sussex
Mid Sussex District Council granted planning permission yesterday for the demolition of a single dwelling and its replacement with two new detached houses of 2,500 sqft for developer client Tkei Homes.
Designed as a mirrored pair of Sussex vernacular homes, the houses take advantage of the long site and are set back substantially from the quite road, sharing a central access driveway allowing the existing mature trees to the front of the site to be retained.
Careful consideration of the local planning policies and a design that is sensitive to the local architectural style and character of the immediate area allowed for a smooth route through planning and positive feedback from the Pre-Application meeting with the planners. This scheme demonstrates that while it may be considered ‘garden-grabbing’ by some the planners can be supportive of well thought out and reasoned applications.
