Agents Note
The current vendor has approached the council regarding the creation of a lay-by parking area with a set of steps leading up to the garden and property. The council have confirmed that there are permitted development rights without the requirement for full planning permission to be obtained.
Highways have confirmed that they are happy to consider the creation of the lay-by parking subject to a structual engineering report to ascertain the safety for the creation of a retaining wall. Highways would also be required to see the creation of a good visibility splay and the area would be required to have a porous grounding such as gravel in order to negate the risk of flooding.
