vb823577_2171078-31aThe affordable housing will be for rent or purchase through the Council or a local housing association.

All homes will be two storey except for two small clusters of three storey apartments, located in the north east corner of the site next to the area of land reserved for healthcare uses, and to the south of the area of land reserved for a school. These locations have been chosen to provide a smooth transition from two storey homes across the rest of the site to the larger, non-residential buildings. These areas can be seen on the layout here.

Design

vb731500_2161034-08aThe new homes have been designed to reflect and respect the local architectural style. They will be made of red or buff brick with some weatherboard and render detailing. Roofs will be a combination of red and grey tiles in keeping with the area.

All homes will be built to the highest construction standards and are insulated, sustainable and easy to maintain.

Every home has allocated parking, with garages provided to the majority of plots. There will also be visitor parking.
