Planning application submitted for new dwellinghouse in Whiston

DLP Planning Ltd has submitted an application to Rotherham Borough Council on behalf of a private landowner for a new dwellinghouse on a former allotment site in the village of Whiston.

The site at Well Lane, Whiston was formerly used as an allotment but in recent years has not been maintained, and the application seeks to find an active beneficial use. Whiston Brook lies immediately beyond the site’s northern boundary, and extensive modelling has been undertaken to demonstrate that the majority of the site is actually in an area at low risk of flooding, with only the land closest to the Brook at a higher risk, and this directed the design process which located the proposed dwelling on the part of the site at lowest risk of flooding.

The carefully designed scheme, prepared by Architectural Innovation Ltd, has been informed by the character of the Whiston Conservation Area, and takes into account a historic well at the site entrance. A number of protected trees within the site will also be retained.

The application proposal also seeks to retain a number of temporary storage units which will be screened from the surrounding Conservation Area by the natural vegetation at the site.
