Meadow Lane



The original site consisted of a two-storey detached house in the middle of a previous timber / coal yard having an area of 1200sq m.

The local area was subject to recent development and it was decided to engage Architectural Building Design Services to look at getting the maximum potential from the land giving the best return on investment.

A scheme of two detached, four bedroom town houses and a pair of semi-detached two bedroom houses were drawn up with proposals for the existing dwelling being demolished.

Careful positioning of the dwellings ensured that adequate distance was provided between the neighboring property windows, as well as taking into account the varying site ground levels which were carefully planned around.

The original planning application was refused by Derby City Council but granted by the Planning Inspectorate at Planning Appeal stage.
