An ideal and sustainable location for a small scale infill development that would minimise traffic generation through the centre of the village.

Whilst Eyeworth is a small settlement there is currently no provision for housing in the settlement and this modest site offers a sustainable location for a small development to meet the future needs of the community.

Whilst physically the site might support up to 15 dwellings a development of up to 10 dwellings would be a better 'fit' for the street scene and the more typical nature of the village. A development in this location would limit traffic congestion in the village centre.

Currently the centre of the village is quite open with pastoral open spaces around the church and development in this location would seek to maintain this balance.

The site adjoins the village development but is not within a Conservation Area. The site offers a discreet development opportunity without significantly affecting views into the village and would have a very limited impact, if any, on the setting of heritage assets.

Preliminary desk based archaeological, ecological and landscape assessments demonstrate that there are no significant constraints to development on this site.

The scale of development proposed indicates that highway and services issues should not act as constraints to development.

The site has no known constraints and offers development with a good relationship to the existing linear development at this point in the village.
