The setting is characterised by several natural features, comprising woodland, grassed areas, and hedging. A small stream, Wagg Brook, runs through the site. The land is gently contoured, sloping down towards a small lake of 0.47Ha. The private client has also developed a woodland garden area to the eastern area of the site.
The new dwelling and garage are sited on the grassy bank to the west of the site entrance track, adjacent to the lake. The new building proposals ensure that existing woodland areas are left untouched, and that there will be minimal impact on other areas of the landscape.
