UF HOUSES ULLSWATER CLOSE KINGSTON
Mark Lawson bought a house next door to his own in Ullswater Close and, in 2007, was granted planning approval to erect a pair of semi-detached Huf houses. This caused absolute outrage from Councillors but, particularly from the local Ullswater community. So when Mark submitted applications for further Huf houses he was met by furious protests. To cut a long story short, over the period of time five further applications were submitted and bitterly opposed.
A history ensued of refusal, and appeal culminating in an application for two further houses being approved. We believe that the opposition to previous schemes because they did not fit in was unjustified as the Huf design is exceptional Anyway, common sense has prevailed and the result is a group of modern houses as good as any in the world.
