Graveley is a semi-rural village set between Stevenage, Hitchin and Baldock. The village offers two well regarded Public Houses with Restaurants, a Village School and a Golf Course. There is easy access to the A1M. The neighbouring town Stevenage comprises of both New and Old Towns. There are comprehensive Shopping Facilities in the New Town, Schools, a Leisure Complex, Theatre and Arts centre and the mainline station to London's Kings Cross providing fast and regular trains to Kings Cross in 23mins.
The site is an area of the extended rear garden at Gothic House, Graveley. The site benefits from an existing access onto Ashwell Common and a long frontage to that road and Oak Lane. The topography of the site increases from east, where the host dwelling Gothic House is situated, to west, where the site faces Ashwell Common. The site has a number of mature trees/hedgerows on its boundaries and a sizeable Sycamore tree in its centre. The site is located within the settlement boundary of Graveley and Conservation Area, within the Local Plan.
Planning permission has been granted for the erection of 4 detached dwellings (2 x 3-bed and 2 x 4-bed) including parking, landscaping and creation of vehicular access off Ashwell Common. The proposed 4 detached dwellings are positioned around the central mature Sycamore tree, which is to be retained as the focal point of the scheme. The dwellings would be accessed via a new vehicular access onto Ashwell Common, leading to an access road which arcs in a crescent shape around the tree. All dwellings would have access to private amenity space and car parking for 2 vehicles. The site would incorporate a mixture of retained and proposed hard/soft landscaping features.
THREE BEDROOM, TWO-STOREY DETACHED HOME WITH SINGLE GARAGE AND ASSOCIATED GARDENS. The proposed accommodation comprises a reception hallway, downstairs cloakroom/wc, open-plan kitchen/dining/family room, sitting room, utility room, first floor landing providing access to three double bedrooms, en-suite shower room and family bathroom. Single garage.
FOUR BEDROOM, THREE-STOREY DETACHED HOME WITH SINGLE GARAGE AND ASSOCIATED GARDENS. The proposed accommodation comprises a reception hallway, downstairs cloakroom/wc, kitchen, sitting room, dining room, utility room, first floor landing providing three double bedrooms, en-suite shower room, family bathroom with the second floor landing providing a further double bedroom and a study/play room.

We believe that the boundary to the south between the proposed development and Hillsbank House runs through the middle of the hedge rather than as shown on the current plan.
We understand there are no Setion 106 or contribution requirements.

Attention is drawn to the requirement for a Preliminary Risk Assessment (Phase 1) Report containing conceptual side module that indicates sources, pathways and receptors.

As highlighted on the site plan, the Highways Department have requested the minor widening and extension of the existing footway with the requirement for a small retaining wall to the rear of the footway on the corner of Ashwell Common and Turf Lane in addition to a new section of footway linked to the existing footway at the entrance to Turf Lane.
