Planning has been granted for a residential development of 28 new houses and public pasture amenity space in the village of Tarporley, Cheshire.
The scheme, which lies within Tarporley Conservation Area, sensitively reinterprets the as built nature of Tarporley, responding to the locally distinctive linear pattern of layout and the materials and architectural character of the village.
A complex and challenging development project, the scheme was supported by Cheshire West and Cheshire Council’s Planning and Conservation team and approved on appeal, with the Inspector stating that the new development would be “a positive addition to the village.”
The heritage value of the relationship between village and rural surroundings has been recognised as primary importance, underpinning the design of the proposed scheme. A major design strategy of the development is the provision of an improved public amenity landscape, enhancing the visual and physical connection between the High Street and the surrounding countryside.
Led by Jones Homes, work is expected to start on site later this year.
