Response to Article below

From the Flowers family
(In response to K & S Watts article see below 'Hello Hatherleigh - Keep Hatherleigh Fields Green!'
Thank you for the opportunity to reply to the post from my neighbour.
It is true; we are planning to build 2 bungalows in the field alongside our own house. Those who know our family personally understand that we love Park Road and Hatherleigh and we have thought very carefully and endeavoured to develop this sympathetically, considering neighbours and landscape.
By working alongside the existing land structure the proposed site is along the road frontage and at the bottom of the hill. This will allow the hill to still dominate the landscape and provide much green agricultural space for sheep to continue grazing. The plot will act as an infill between existing housing and the plot itself is outside of the conservation area. The dwellings are designed so that our neighbours opposite still retain views and the existing roadside hedgerow is also retained.
The planning stage is at the outline stage and there is still further approval and chance to comment on the design. However we have produced a detailed plan of the design in advance to reassure residents that the development is sympathetic to the surrounding area.
We very much see ourselves as part of the community and hate to think that our planning application has led to our characters being called into question. We would like to think that any objection to our plans could be offered in a way conducive to a harmonious neighbourhood community. We would also like to thank all that have supported our application so far and those that recognise the positives in our proposal.
With Best Wishes, Paul and Danielle Flowers
