The site is located on the eastern side of the town.  It comprises a greenfield area of land which extends to 7.68ha and slopes to the north consistent with the prevailing topography of the surrounding area.  There are no built structures within the site itself. 


The western part of the site (where the built development is proposed) is broadly rectangular in shape and is closely surrounded on three sides by existing built development (predominantly 2 storey housing) such that it reads as a logical infill site.
