Many of you will be aware of 36 Scawen Road. An odd property sitting in the corner of the the road. However, behind the facade is a small plot of land. Historically the house has been in the same family for many years but recently it was sold. The property is locally listed.
The new owner has submitted a planning application that proposes alterations, restoration and conversion of the existing house to provide 2 houses with alterations to the roof to form a crown roof with side and rear dormers, together with the construction of 5, three and four storey houses, a children play area, allotments and a wildlife corridor around the site.
The owner intends to move his own family into one of the properties and the others will provide accommodation for chefs and staff of his small pub chain
. Furthermore, the builds will be eco-builds with a range of innovative environmentally friendly initiatives. He intends to keep the site open for local to access and wants to work with local schools, and community groups to run planting sessions in the allotments and a great deal more. There is even a proposal to plant 40 new trees locally.
