As previously reported, the majority of the properties will be accessed via Blankney Crescent, either with a direct frontage or private drive but four plots will be accessed via a separate private drive from Riseholme Road to the southwestern corner of the site.

Plots one to 10 will see five two-bedroom properties, four three-bedroom properties and one four-bedroom property constructed.

The remaining plots of the proposed development will contain three bedrooms.

The two-bedroom properties will be served by one parking space, with the three and four-bedroom properties being served by two spaces, all be within the application site.
