The site was located outside of the defined settlement boundary for the village but we had attained outline permission for two dwellings last year and this was very much down to the current lack of a five year housing land supply in Wiltshire.  There was however strong local opposition and the application was referred to planning committee by the local councillor who was also objecting to the proposal.

The detailed application that followed was also subject to strong opposition with claims of over development being made, again the application was referred to committee by the local councillor.  RCC worked closely with the architect in order to try and maximise the potential of the site whilst also having the best chance of attaining planning permission.  The resulting dwellings were carefully designed so that, whilst the front elevation (image of the left) appeared modest in scale, the rear elevation (image on the right) was expressed in a way to make the best of the views across the fields to the rear.  The central gable is a good sized protrusion to accommodate the master bedroom and a large balcony and two other rear facing bedrooms also benefit from Juliet Balconies.
