Sustainably located just a short walk to Caterham town centre the site covers a total area of 4ha, half of which is proposed for housing with the remainder providing extensive areas of woodland and public open space with linkages into neighbouring public footpaths. The site is surrounded by housing on three sides ensuring that development would effectively act as an infill. The site is considered to have capacity for around 60 dwellings with the focus being on provision of family homes, 34% of which would be affordable.
