PLANNING Outline planning consent was granted on the 21st June 2019 by East Cambridgeshire District Council for 10 self/custom build dwellings (reference number 19/00408/OUM).

SITE DIMENSIONS Approximately 332 square metres

PLOT PASSPORT Within the build area a 8m height restriction applies.

Principle frontage should front the main avenue, but does not need to abut this line.

A minimum of 2 parking spaces should be provided, however, their location on the plot passport is indicative and may be provided within a garage or car port, however, this must be within the build zone and count towards the overall footprint.

A boundary hedge should be planted along the north and west boundaries and should be in line with the Soft Landscaping Materials Palette within the Design Code document. The homeowner is responsible for the maintenance of these boundaries.

The front boundary will be planted in accordance with the Soft Landscaping Materials Palette prior to occupation and will be maintained by the management company.

A minimum of one tree should be planted prior to occupation of the dwelling and should be in line with the Soft Landscaping Materials Palette within the Design Code Document.

The dwelling should not be situated less than 1.5m from the east and west boundaries and 6m from the south boundary. The build area will be marked on site.

Materials/contractor storage areas outlined within this document should be followed and comply with the plot passport.

Any existing trees within the plot boundary should be protected during construction.

RULES OF DEVELOPMENT Each plot has a unique building zone which varies according to each plot size, orientation and existing site constraints. This fixed zone will ensure each dwelling respects its neighbouring context, including neighbouring plots and vegetation. Further plot rules include build height, principle frontages, boundary distances and suggested parking areas.

Principle frontage lines orientate each dwelling to the main avenue and help create a rational street scene.Frontages need not be abutting this line.

Each plot should have a minimum of 2 parking spaces. Should these be included within the building zone, such as within a garage or carport, this will count towards the total buildable footprint, This is to ensure the street scape does not become overcrowded and negatively impact the overall site aesthetic. The installation of electric car charging points is encouraged.

The access point to most plots is unfixed (site constraints result in fixed access points to plots 1 & 7), however, one new tree should be planted within the front garden of each plot, with a root protection area implemented to protect the main avenue.

Wall mounted metres should not be placed along principle frontages.Solar arrays should be placed on south facing roofs to optimum angles to maximum performance. Satellite dishes should be positioned to the rear of the dwelling and not along principle frontages

PLOT RULES The build area for each plot varies according to site constraints and plot sizes, so it is important to consider specific plot passports.

Scale and Form - 8m and 4m high maximum zones

Parking allocation - minimum of 2 spaces per dwelling to be located within the front garden area (unless specified within the specific plot passport).

Principle frontage - the main frontage should face this direction but does not necessarily need to abut this boundary.
