Another plan submitted for bungalow in Olives Yard garden

Plans to build a bungalow in the garden of Maltmead Cottage, in Olives Yard, Uckfield, are before Wealden Council for the second time.

A statement with the planning application describes the two-bedroom bungalow, with two car parking spaces and a turning area, as being “extremely sustainable” because it would be adjacent to Uckfield High Street.

The statement adds: “It is also a small single storey unit which there is a great shortage of in this area of Wealden District Council.”

The bungalow would be similar to the neighbouring Maltmead Cottage, “very traditional with brickwork walls and a tiled pitch roof”.

Uckfield Town Council supported a previous planning application to build on the garden – see Maltmead Cottage: Small home planned for garden but the district council refused the plan saying it would represent over-development of a restricted backland site. See ‘No’ to Maltmead Cottage garden plan.

Details of the latest planning application, number WD/2020/0125/F, can be found on the Wealden website.
