Planning Application for New House in Friar Park

Olivia Harrison has applied for planning permission for a new dwelling to built at Friar Park on the disused tennis courts.

The design of the proposed dwelling (33 metres long with a depth of 16 metres) has been delivered by Border Oak, a specialist oak framed construction company. The choice of materials have been carefully selected to ensure a natural and traditional building is delivered on site. The building itself will be constructed with an Oak timber frame, complimented by plain clay roof tiles, handmade brick plinth, with horizontal oak weatherboarding.

All that exists of the tennis court is the perimeter fencing and hardstanding which is proposed to be removed as part of the proposal.

The plans for the dwelling show a kitchen/diner, lounge, utility and music room on the ground floor and 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 other rooms on the first floor which are accessed via a spiral staircase.  There are 2 spaces for vehicles and vehicular access will be via Lambridge Lane.

Henley Town Council Planning Committee reviewed the application this week and recommended the plans for approval.
