1950s bungalows in Peak District village to be demolished for luxury homes

Members of the Peak District National Park Planning Committee have approved plans for two double-fronted detached houses on the Bella Vista site in Tinman Lane, Sheen.

The four bedroom houses proposed by the applicant, Mr R Blackhurst, would be built of natural stone and one of them would have a single attached garage.

Speaking at a meeting on Friday September 30, Councilor Andrew Hart said: ‘It’s a shame to lose bungalows like this as there is a need in the area so we are swapping bungalows for individual houses and the people who would be in the bungalows might be significantly different from those one would like in the open market house.
