PLANS have been submitted for eight properties on the former Bramley Olde Hall site.
The Advertiser told last week how the site had been left as a pile of rubble a year on from the 17th century cottage’s demolition.
Applicant Dennis Hobson has asked for permission for five homes with three bedrooms, a four-bedroom house, five-bedroom house and two-bedroom bungalow.
The proposals say: “Most of the houses reflect the previous position of Ye Old Cottage, whilst the four remaining properties have been spread around the site reflecting the local urban grain.
“Given the site’s current condition, maintaining large amounts of soft landscaping and greenery was a large importance from the outset of this design.
“During the design process, aligning with the area’s ‘green’ ethos was a huge priority.
“In order to achieve this, we have opted for a low emission-based parking strategy.
“Each dwelling has access to an average of two parking spaces, at least one space for each of the dwellings will be fitted with an electrical vehicle charging port.”
The main entrance to the site is from Main Street, with the rest fronting onto Old Hall Road, reflecting the former position of the cottage, which dated back to 1666.
“The design of the development has been carefully considered to reflect the local area and heritage.”
One resident’s only concern was parking, with visitors likely to leave vehicles in the existing spaces currently used by other residents.
He added: “I know this will happen because people use our parking space when they visit the hairdresser round the corner.
“So in our opinion it’s only going to get worse with more houses in the area.
“Would it be feasible to erect a ‘resident parking only’ sign?”
