* mandatory field

Leithfield Park is located in the Surrey Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with good links to London. The development consists of 108 high quality homes in the grounds of the disused Milford Hospital, replacing the hospital service buildings and renovating the beautiful grounds. The fantastic surrounding landscape provides a lush setting for the housing and a varied resource for the residents and local people to enjoy and cherish, while careful design of the parking and connections to local transport and amenities make the development accessible and sustainable for a new rural community.

A mix of quality homes are provided to reflect the needs of local residents, from 1 bed flats to 5 bed barn-style houses. These are set in a range of landscape spaces, from the existing woodland that surrounds the site, to orchards, open areas containing sustainable drainage and retained mature trees, to more formal gardens. 33 percent of the homes are affordable, and 10 houses are provided on the custom build model where the purchaser choose the final design to suit their needs.

The Orange lines represent pedestrian and cycle connections and link with Tuesley Lane, and with the existing footpath to the Portsmouth Road bus stop (4) to the north of the site, and to Milford Station (3) to the south west. There is also potential for future connections from the site to the hospital.

Plan showing local facilities and access routes, including pedestrian and cycle ways

The site is located at the edge of Milford Village and Godalming with their associated shops and schools and is not of sufficient scale to accommodate communal facilities of significant size.

However to mitigate this a central park with community orchard and play trail is complimented by the surrounding network of public paths, with a central community shelter providing a public notice board and a meeting place.

Further the provision of a hopper bus service will further mitigate the impact of the development and provide access to local facilities

Plan showing layout of character areas

The site layout is organised into two parts. The eastern half adjacent to the retained hospital features formal groupings of flats, short terraces and semi-detached homes while the area to the west which fronts on to open countryside is arranged in informal clusters of detached homes. The intention is that these informal clusters echo the historic and organic growth of farm buildings around a central yard, examples of which exist immediately to the north and east of the site. Running between these two characters is a central spine of open space which ensures all homes enjoy a sense of their rural setting with the benefit of connection to the public footpaths that lead into Milford with its facilities and train station providing further connections.

Plan showing planting in central linear parkland

The site benefits from a mature framework of woodland, hedgerows and trees around which the proposed development is structured - providing a highly attractive, mature and substantially green new neighbourhood from the outset. The soft landscaping design creatse formal parkland setting to flats that preserves specimens and landforms to reference the former landscape character, working with the housing layout to maximise and frame views over open spaces.

A new linear park is the principle organising feature, providing a walking and cycling route that winds through the existing mature trees. A network of footpaths and lanes link the open spaces within the new neighbourhood. These open spaces combine recreational amenity and play with enhanced wildlife corridors and biodiversity. They extend existing woodland to connect with north and south, providing a recreational and wildlife link to wider countryside.

The landscape strategy has been developed in tandem with the masterplan layout, ecological surveys and tree strategy to ensure a fully integrated approach. The landscape mitigation provides replacement planting for the vegetation that needs to be removed to enable development. In developing the soft landscaping strategy we have sought to protect and preserve significant existing trees to provide maturity and visual amenity, and renovate existing features for example the orchard.

The materials used for the hard landscaping are designed to reflect the wider hierarchy and balance of occupation between pedestrians and vehicles for the different routes through the site .

For the principle road the finish material is black tarmac with raised granite kerbs. Raised tables constructed in granite setts to mark thresholds and junctions with secondary road, and to calm traffic. The secondary road is finished in concrete block pavers with a flush granite kerb. Parking spaces are delineated with a grey block incorporated into the paving pattern. Lanes and parking areas are finished in concrete block pavers with concrete kerb edging and parking spaces delineated with grey concrete blocks.

Shared footpath and cycleways through the site will be tarmac finished with buff coloured chipping and edged with a flush concrete pin kerb. The woodland paths will by finished in wood chipping.
