Site requirements:

  • A Heritage, Design and Access Statement and a World Heritage Site Checklist.
  • Best practicable visibility splays need to be incorporated into the design of the scheme to address highway safety issues onto B5289.
  • Design and materials should reflect local vernacular and retain existing boundary features to minimise landscape impact.
  • The site layout will need to reflect the need to maintain the root protection area for the existing trees within the site and on neighbouring land.
  • Bat and red squirrel surveys may be required, as there are bats recorded within 500m of the site.
  • Retention of the existing boundary features and trees, and planting of appropriate native species trees has the potential to enhance ecological connectivity with surrounding habitats and assimilate development into the wider landscape. Landscaping scheme to be submitted with planning application.
  • Archaeological desk-based assessment.
  • Surface water drainage strategy is required which incorporates SUDS. A suitable discharge location will need to be demonstrated.
  • The Borrowdale Woodland Complex is a designated Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and Johnny Wood Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) so development, including construction, must avoid adverse impact on the designated watercourse.
