As you can see from the design and access statement, the property is a two-storey detached house within substantial grounds located within the Downs Hill Conservation Area. The exterior of the building is white painted render at the ground floor and a dilapidated Waney Edge timber cladding at first floor level. Existing windows are single glazed and in poor state of repair – many have cracks and/or are unable to be closed properly.

The front of the property features a two storey white rendered entrance with gable. This includes a beautiful tall stained glass window which is in a poor state of repair.

The proposal is for existing dilapidated and damaged single glazed windows to be replaced with double glazed windows with timber/metal frames. The existing stained glass window is dilapidated and not secure. The proposal seeks to retain the opening and replace with a sensitively detailed timber/metal framed double glazed window.

The standard consultation expiry date is Wednesday 9 October 2019.
