New plan to build on land next to 30 Sycamore Court, Uckfield

A new plan has been submitted – after another was refused – to build on a piece of land next to 30 Sycamore Court, on the Manor Park Estate, Uckfield.


The junction of Sycamore Court with Downsview Crescent on the Manor Park Estate where a house could be built on a corner piece of land next to 30 Sycamore Court.

It is for a three-bedroom property with a garage and access onto Downsview Crescent. The house would be designed to match those at numbers 29 and 30 in size, style, and materials.

A similar planning application for a dwelling with integral garage on the site was refused in January 2016 and an appeal against refusal was dismissed because of “adverse impacts on the character and appearance of the street scene”.

The latest application incorporates changes including:

  • Reduction of the footprint of the building
  • Design to match numbers 29 and 30 in size and style, using matching materials
  • The dwelling will have “an adequately sized rear garden”
  • The dwelling will have an off road parking space and the garage will be set back, accessed from Downsview Crescent.

A statement submitted to Wealden Council with the planning application says the dwelling would make a small, but valuable, contribution towards housing targets, in a sustainable location.

It says the proposal would not have any adverse impacts on neighbours and would provide a good standard of living for the occupants.
