The summary submitted to the Council is as follows.

“Oak Tree Homes Trust are a registered charity, who wish to construct a residential building architecturally to mimic a Victorian building, comprising of 9 age‐restricted retirement apartments, with a communal lounge, 12 carparking spaces, access and landscaping. All the accommodation is contained  within one  building  with  the  apartments being  age  restricted, open  market  and  for retirement use. The Charity will be the Landlord who will manage the maintenance of the building, while all support services are intended to be imported.

A similar development at this site, also designed architecturally to mimic a Victorian building, although approved was not built. This application is of a similar design and detailing, as agreed with advice from Council Officers.

The existing close boarded fence will be replaced with a black wrought iron fence and gates with existing well established hedges behind, so very little of the property will be seen from Broadwater Down.”
