54 Fairfield Drive is an unusual house, set at an angle to the road, with a large side garden. Ribble Valley Borough Council refused planning permission for a house in the side garden on design grounds. Fairfield Drive is within an estate of 1960s and 1970s houses with a variety of styles, plot sizes and space between dwellings. The appeal Inspector agreed with us that in this context the design is appropriate. Drawings by Sunderland Peacock Architects.
