Development site in a secluded location, outline planning permission granted, in close proximity of Sevenoaks town and mainline station DESCRIPTION The site sits in a secluded location off a quiet, private cul-de sac on the western side of Sevenoaks town. There is a large tree buffer along the rear of the site, providing natural screening between the proposal and the railway line. The topography of the site falls away from North to South. There are two existing outbuildings within the site, with existing vehicular access from the private lane, Scotts Hill, off South Park. Half of the site sits within part of the town's Conservation Area with the other half outside of it. There is another part of the Conservation Area located to the South West which takes into account properties fronting Oakhill Road. There is a public right of way running to the North of the site and forking off towards the North East and South West which provides a footpath to the town from the Kippington area. There are no TPO's on the land but the rules of the conservation area would need to be observed. The proposed property must be sited within a defined area of the land and must respect a ''sight-line' height restriction A tree next to the entrance would also need to be removed due to its proximity to the proposal. To keep the height of the proposed house down it has been partly dug into the slope to take advantage of the topography, which would mean entering the property at the higher level. This takes advantage of views to the south and a decked or raised terrace area could make the most of this location. Outline Planning Permission was granted by Sevenoaks Council on 22nd February 2022 (21/03945/OUT) for a single dwelling, which expires 3 years from the date of permission being granted.
