The proposed new dwellings each have private amenity space to the rear of the dwellings. The existing dwelling retains a large curtilage and the their private amenity space is to the rear of the property, away from the access to the garage, which means that there will be no overlooking from the first floor of the proposed dwellings. The proposals have been positioned to be facing Common Hill and are in line with no. 16a which will not be overlooked.

The proposed properties would be viewed in the context of the existing built environment, there are dwellings to the west and east, when viewed from Common Hill, albeit this development is set back behind a tree line. It is considered that the landscaping, site layout and existing and proposed site context mean the proposals has an acceptable impact on the visual amenities of the surrounding area.
