The applicants, Mr and Mrs Preston, currently live in another detached property in Eden Gardens but have aspirations to downsize.

Due to their love for the area, they have taken the decision to try and develop land they own for a smaller property which would meet their future needs.

A design and access statement submitted to Ribble Valley Borough Council said: “The proposed dwelling has been designed to nestle into the existing streetscape with the overall roof height comparable to the neighbouring property.

“The material palette is simple with Yorkshire stone walling and contrasting render to the walls, natural slate to the roof and aluminium windows and rainwater goods.

“The proposal allows for the parking of two cars on a driveway to the south of the site which accords with LCC Highway Standards for a three-bed dwelling, though as the site is privately owned, LCC standards are guidance only as the roads are outside of the local authority highways jurisdiction.

“Because the applicant is downsizing, they would ideally like to have the use of an external store where their belongings will not be able to be accommodated within the main dwelling.”
