4. Meeting local housing requirements

Artists impression of the view towards Hanham Hall from the centre of the site

The scheme addresses local housing requirements by providing a wide range of accommodation, from 1 bedroom flats and coach houses to five bedroom houses. These are arranged in terraces, semi-detached and detached arrangements to create varied urban form. A significant proportion of the homes are family homes with parking in-curtilage or adjacent to the home. Smaller apartments provide an accessible entry level to the housing market, whilst coach houses provide a good intermediate step between houses and apartments. A third of the homes (65) are affordable, and will be managed by Sovereign Homes.

Within and along the boundary of the historic curtilage wall we have created an area we describe as the ‘Walled Courts’. At the entry to the site, in the location of the old farm yard and buildings, we refer to ‘The Yard’. Around the edge of the site, where the historic hedgerows are maintained and enhanced, we propose an area called ‘The Hedgerows’. Finally around the eastern and northern boundaries where meadowland and park is proposed we have identified ‘The Meadows’.

The Mews Courts are a series of shared surfaces that adopt homezone principles where the street is an informal area with organic incidental spaces created by the movement of the building line.

High quality paving materials including banding have been selected for the main surface of this mews, with the squares at the junctions defined by change in tone and texture to further slow traffic and denote ownership.
