DETAILED plans have been revealed for a home on the site of a former mansion.

Copeland Council has received a second, more detailed planning application for the construction of a two-storey dwelling on land at Rheda Park.

The dwelling will join Rheda Cross, a large bungalow at the former site of the demolished Rheda Mansion.

Setting out the plans in the reserved matters planning application, PFK Planning and Development said: "The design of the dwelling has considered the surrounding pattern of development, the orientation of existing properties and the original hard landscaping features from the former Rheda Mansion.

"This site is well contained by existing mature screening and the retention of the key boundary features along with the open space will serve to mitigate against any visual impact.

"The existing screening will be retained which will help to integrate the new dwelling into its surroundings and preserve the character of the area."

On behalf of the applicant, Dr McKay, they said that the plan fits in with local and national planning policy.

"The proposed site would provide a logical and appropriate 'infill' site along the main drive of Rheda Park.

"The proposed development will carefully consider the built form of Rheda Park and will be of a high-quality design that reflects the existing pattern of development."

The public can view and comment on all applications submitted to the council for approval. The planning panel will take comments of support or objection into account when deciding whether to give plans the greenlight.
