Alex, I am familiar with the site, and the guiding princples governing the landscape management of the holding, which has seen the fabric of the site rejuvenated and enhanced. Development form is either discreetly located, as with the residential area, or kept compact, as with the ‘industrial zone’, and I have no landscape issues with the proposal, nor the objectives of ongoing site management. The proposed introduction of the apple press can be accomodated within the existing landscape with little impact, hence I have no further issues to raise.
