Amendments to Policy S40 – Woodchurch, Front Road

Policy S40 - Woodchurch - Front Road

The site in Front Road, Woodchurch is proposed for residential development for up to a maximum of 8 dwellings. Development proposals for this site shall:

  1. Be designed and laid out in such a way as to protect and enhance the character and setting of the Woodchurch Conservation Area. The updated Conservation Area Appraisal and Woodchurch Village Design Statement guidelines must be taken into account when considering the design of the site;
  2. Be of a scale or massing which would not dominate this approach to the Conservation Area and ensure a maximum height of 2-storey properties;
  3. Be set well back from Front Road with the principal elevations facing the road frontage;
  4. Subject to providing safe access to the site, retain and enhance a hedge boundary to Front Road and provide substantial soft landscaping around the site to screen the development from the open countryside and protect the amenity of neighbouring properties, whilst retaining allowing key historic some views through the site to the countryside.
