A significant amount of public consultation was required to convince the local residents that the scheme would be acceptable. Several significant trees had to be protected and the scheme needed to provide a mixture of family housing and smaller units to meet local housing need. This mixed tenure development consists of 79 new homes comprising 54 rented homes, 23 HomeBuy properties and two assisted person’s bungalows.
The scheme demonstrates our skills in refurbishing existing structures and managing public opposition to controversial proposals in one of the most stringent planning regimes in the country. The development was also completed to a high standard on a limited budget.
