      The application site is located on the northern side of The Woods and incorporates the land that currently supports one detached dwelling and generous private amenity area.

      The Woods is a minor road accessed from Sandy Lane and the Watford Road, and consists predominantly of large detached residential properties set back from the fronting road.

      Rectangular in shape (approx. 51.0m wide x 64.2m deep), the site extends to an area of 0.76 of an acre.

      The existing ground levels within the site fall gradually from right to left by approximately 3.1m, and this exists on nearby properties fronting Sandy Lane.

      To the front of the plot, the frontage consists mainly of a brick paved driveway, with trees, hedging and low level planting lining the boundaries.

      Towards the rear of the site, all boundaries are well screened by either high level hedging or mature trees, with the majority of the gardens laid to lawn.

      The architectural character of the area is mainly traditional in appearance and, in keeping with the character of the road and the area in general, the planning is for a traditional “Arts & Crafts” replacement building.

      Many of the large neighbouring detached dwellings that currently exist along The Woods have been extended or demolished over time, with many new-build replacement properties evident, so with this in mind a replacement Arts & Crafts building in this location is deemed to be an acceptable form of development.
