LANDSCAPING, appearance, layout and scale for a development of four houses in Carleton has been approved.

The application, which already has outline approval, and was submitted by former district councillor Robert Mason, is on land off Carla Beck Lane, covering an area of around 0.23 hectares.

The site is partially enclosed along the northern boundary by a selection of trees and shrubs with further shrubs continuing along the eastern boundary.

Changes in ground levels means that the access to the site slopes uphill southwards.

The proposals are for two four-bed and two three -bed houses to be either two storey or single storey in height with a mixture of detached and integral garages and off street parking.

The houses adjacent to Carla Beck Lane have been designed to reflect the orientation of dwellings adjacent to the site with side elevations facing towards the street.

The surrounding area is a mixture of traditional and modern houses of differing design and appearance.

They are to be built from natural stone under a blue slate roof.

Details of the landscaping were considered satisfactory subject to conditions to secure the trees’ protection measures.

Foul water will be carried to an onsite treatment plant.
