An extraordinary and rather interesting proposal has been put forward for a house on one of the few remaining sites on the Linney. This site overlooks the tennis courts and is so steeply sloping, at first glance it seems impractical to develop.
The solution the developers have come with for this awkward site is to bury most of the two storey house into the bank, with just an oval peering out towards the tennis courts (15/00459/FUL).
The property will have below ground parking accessed using a car lift .
The applicant is Andrew Badlan who lives next door in Castle Meadow.
My provisional view on this proposal is that it looks good and is an innovative and exciting way of dealing with a difficult site. But we must look in detail at the heritage impact of the scheme before making a decision.
