Plans to build a home within a village’s conservation area have been approved.
Councillors from East Cambridgeshire District Council’s planning committee granted permission for a property to be built behind 11 Chapel Lane in Reach, near Fordham, at a recent meeting.
The site behind 11 Chapel Lane in Reach, near Fordham, also sits within the village’s conservation area and development envelope
It is opposite a Grade II Listed building called ‘White Roses’ which was formerly known as the ‘Old Vicarage’.
The two-bed building will face, and be accessed from, The Hythe which leads to a public right of way and sewerage works are beyond.
The scheme has been amended four times, mainly changing elements of the external appearance of the property being proposed.
A car port included in the original plans was also removed and the overall building reduced in size.
The home also has an en-suite at first floor, open living at ground floor with utility, WC and study. Two car parking spaces are proposed.
Councillors granted the application by majority at a planning committee meeting on September 2.
