Consultant's Summary
Carling Hill is immediately adjacent to the southern entrance to Burneside village from Kendal. As a consequence, development of the site would encroach on the gap between the two settlements. The site is relatively small, so the encroachment would be minimal. There is an existing field gate which also provides for a public right of way. The footpath adjacent to the main road, leading to Kendal, ends adjacent to this gate and whilst not insurmountable, this raises an issue that would need to be addressed in terms of access/highway safety.

As implied by the name, part of the site is raised above the level of the road. As a consequence, development would appear prominently in the landscape when seen from the south and it is likely that there would be a significant impact on local character, whereby a green, open and spacious site would be replaced by built form. However, there is an opportunity to provide an appropriate access and the site is in a location that would be very attractive to potential residents.
