The proposals draw from building forms of traditional Lytham; with steep gable, slate roofs with generous eaves and gable projections, whilst also using contemporary forms of large areas of glazing, glass balcony detailing and crisp edge of roof detailing.

The properties off Church Drive are in a mix of styles built from the turn of the 20th century with more recent additions and a new property currently under construction; with a mixture of pitched, flat roofed and hybrid properties.
The application property comprises accommodation of 272 sq m, arranged on two floors and including an open plan lounge dining lounge on ground floor, with separate lounge; and at first floor; four bedrooms each with en-suite accommodation. The existing garage is to remain, with improvements to its external appearance, including a new pitched roof.
