Sten Architecture (Planning) & Evolution Architecture (Working Drawings)

Available to move 2016

Grove Road, Preston comprises of a mix of 3, 4 & 5 bedroom houses that are reflective and complementary of the properties that characterise Preston.

The quality of house type detailing and materials proposed create a sense of character. As such, the properties will feature tile hanging, timber cladding, render and brick carefully placed to create harmonious areas of the development.

A high number of destinations can be reached on foot, cycle or by public transport, with local amenities a short walk away. In addition a new LAP and meadow land is to be created for use by all of Preston’s residents. Well-designed, sensitive landscaping and boundary treatments clearly define the boundary between public and private spaces. Streets are adequately framed through the siting of dwellings and the use of dual fronted corner turning units, create a visual interest and additional surveillance to the street.

1. Connections

Site Layout

A clear road hierarchy has been established with defined routes throughout. Pedestrian connections proposed connect with the proposed meadow land to the North and the Public Footpath network to the South, with internal footways providing access to the centrally located play facilities. Vehicular access to the main body of the site will be achieved via the Grove Road & Stourmouth Road providing a linked network with individual accesses from these roads to perimeter plots. These connections will form access to the wider footpath network.
