The Becks Development
Outline Planning permission was granted in August 2016 for redevelopment of an existing residence within a large garden, replacing the old cottage with 3 detached, four bedroom new build houses. Approval has been granted for redevelopment of the site but the detailed design aspects and materials are yet to be agreed under "reserved matters".
This provides great flexibility and a good opportunity for a variety of build options, subject to the appropriate approval.
Encouragement has been given by Herefordshire Council Planning Department stating that "a variety of dwelling types and complimentary vernacular materials will be encouraged", suggesting that traditional build styles will be favoured (Informatives note 2, planning approval 153788, pg 5). The final designs will be subject to formal planning approval.
