AN APPLICATION for a detached bungalow to be built in Broadway, Woodbury, failed to receive the backing of the village's parish council.

Councillors felt the proposal had not altered from a previous application which was turned down by EDDC in 1999.

The site is based within a built-up area of Woodbury, occupying a strip of land adjacent to the drive of Celandine and properties Little Orchard and The Grange.

Reasons for the previous application being refused included feelings the proposed development would result in the loss of an important area of land.

And, due to its density, it was felt it would be intrusive and out of keeping with the open, spacious character of the area.

Further reasons included its poor relationship to adjacent buildings, leading to a loss of amenities and the local planning authority would find it difficult to resist similar proposals.
