Five new houses are being proposed for the Moor View Farm site, alongside restoration of the main farm buildings.
Jaguar Estates, the company behind the Moor View Farm development, has shared initial details of their plans. They intend to rescue the main old house and fully restore it. This will involve replacement of the rear extension with a similar one on two levels.
The developers propose to rebuild the outbuildings – which are unsafe and in poor order – along the same lines to maintain the farm feeling, and create another two barn-style dwellings on the top part of the site.
A new roadway is proposed down the right side of the existing house to serve five new 3/4 bedroomed houses across the rear of the site.
Details of the scheme will be worked up in the near future for a full submission in May. The planners won’t accept an application until the developers have refreshed the bat survey in May. This survey showed an absence of bats last September.
In the meantime, work starts on the main farmhouse in March.
