Plans have been submitted to build ten new homes in Isfield.
The proposal is to build them on land to the west of Culpepper Close, Station Road, but all that Wealden Council is being asked to consider at the moment is a vehicular access to the site.
Documents before the council say the application is to formalise access which already provides access to social housing in Culpepper Close, in the ownership of the applicant, Mr Martin Tabbutt.
The site is roughly in the centre of Isfield, some 350m to the north west of the Laughing Fish Pub and Lavender Line.
Station Road runs north to south past the site, with vehicular access in situ. Isfield Farm Shop is just to the south east on the opposite side of Station Road. Isfield sports recreation ground is to the north.
At the front of the wedge-shaped site are the five social houses in Culpepper Close. They are laid out in two blocks with gardens extending westward towards the application site.
The existing access would be improved, widening the existing roadway to five metres to facilitate passing traffic. This would mean reducing the width of an existing grass verge.
While the access is the subject of the present planning application a layout has shown four areas of new housing: a block of two one-bedroom flats and three two-bedroom houses at the eastern end of the site, a terrace of three two-bedroom homes and a pair of three bedroom semi-detached homes at the western end of the site.
