Located in parkland on the historic Royal Roussillon Barracks site, yet minutes away from the town centre, these characterful yet contemporary homes are sustainable exemplars.

Masterplan indicating blocks, routes and pedestrian priority areas

The development is conceived of as a series of blocks and mews with interlinked green spaces and a sense of integration with the neighbouring streets. Nearby are barracks buildings and hardstanding, a parade ground/Green, Havenstoke Park to the east, and residential development dating from the late 19th century to the present day. The site is bounded to east and west by historic flint and brick walls, which are preserved as a reflection of military history, but punctured in a number of key locations to promote good east-west pedestrian and cycle links and prevent the site having an impermeable ‘gated’ quality.

The site will have easy to understand routes across and through

Roussillon. The scheme integrates with existing roads, paths and surrounding development. The Barracks flint wall is being retained to retain a sense of military history but this will be penetrated at key locations to link to surrounding streets. The streets will be pedestrian and cycle friendly, with many shared

surfaces, home zone areas and well protected play areas.

Pedestrian, bike and bus links

Given its close proximity to Chichester City centre and an abundance of local facilities, Roussillon Park will be a development where it is possible to meet a high proportion of daily needs on foot, cycle, or public transport, rather than relying on the car, and the urban design is such to encourage this. Streets have been designed to give priority to pedestrians and cycles, so that car-use will be secondary to the role of the street as the public realm for people who will live in Roussillon Park. For this reason the road layout is constrained, and through its design, deliberately limits the speed of vehicles.

3. Public transport

Green connections through the site

The proposed scheme has been designed to maximise permeability and access from the new development to the public transport nodes. The development will have 12 pedestrian and cycles entrances, ensuring swift access for all residents to connect to the neighbouring bus stops on Broyle and Summersdale Roads. The development is served by two bus routes on either side, and being located within a 25 minute walk (or 10 minute bus ride) to Chichester Main line station, with regular services to London Victoria (1 hour 35 minutes), and Gatwick airport (1 hour). Chichester city-centre is a 15 walk away, or a five minute bus ride.

Green travel accessibility

A link into the forthcoming Real Time Passenger Information services

is to be installed in all bus stops and travel nodes in Chichester, and each dwelling will have an RTPI screen installed to show, in real-time, when the next bus will arrive at the closest stop, and also train departure information. This in itself will do much to encourage the ease of public transport and discourage the use of the car for local use.

Roussillon Park aims to reduce carbon emissions further by creating a

managed car club scheme in conjunction with the neighbouring

Graylingwell Park, with vehicles provided on site for rent by the hour or

day, thus reducing over time the need for second, or even first car

ownership. The car club scheme will initially be supported until full occupancy accurately reflects the demand for car club vehicles.At least one car will be provided as soon as the first dwelling is occupied, and the Home User Guide (HUG) and development website will market the club to residents.

To meet Chichester’s growing aspiration to become a ‘cycle city’, all

homes have been designed to include cycle storage to a level in line with CSH 4 andWSCC standards, either in-house, or easy rear access to

covered cycle sheds within each private garden. In addition to the CSH

requirement, numerous secure visitor cycle spaces will also be provided.

4. Meeting local housing requirements

Diagram showing allocation of affordable housing throughout the site

The affordable housing will be ‘pepperpotted’ in a tenure-blind fashion through the development, so that there will be no visual

distinction in architectural design between the tenures. Fully in accordance with CDC’s current policies, 40% of the proposed housing will be for affordable housing, to be transferred to ZeroC’s

chosen Housing Association partner,Hastoe.Chichester has the highest level of affordable housing

need across the Coastal West Sussex Housing Market

area, requiring a range of property sizes but with the

greatest affordable pressure being for smaller

properties. This proposal to offer 51 homes under the

intermediate tenure model will greatly assist those who

would otherwise be unable to access the housing

market in Chichester, through the delivery of a range of

accommodation types; from smaller homes for singles

and couples that struggle to access the property ladder

through to family accommodation to encourage young

families to remain within the district.The accommodation offers a range of house

types from the smaller dwellings through to the larger

family houses that have been prioritized by the district.Considerable demand remains for affordable rented

accommodation as determined by the Strategic

Housing Market Assessment and the Council’s Housing

Strategy. The homes will meet Lifetime Homes standards to

ensure that the accommodation can meet with the

changing demands of the household and assist in the

Council’s strategy of providing a range of

accommodation to account for identified housing

demand through its Choice Based Lettings Policy.

Masterplan indicating character areas

We differentiate one area of development from another through a range of massing and density, as well as changes in building styles and types. Within the development, different streets will have different qualities that draw upon the traditional vernacular of Chichester for inspiration. As a whole, the architecture of Roussillon will create a quietly contemporary response to traditional Chichester streets and houses. Combined with a careful approach to landscape, informed by existing trees, flint walls and views, the design team is confident that Roussillon Park will feel like a place with a distinctive character.

Key to soft landscaping strategy

Where possible trees will be retained to add mature scale, screen and filter views and to provide dappled shade. The majority of the former parade ground, known as the Green, will be retained as an open green space. This will provide 10,459 sqm of public open space within the southern part of the site, and the intention is to retain its existing open nature to allow it to be used for a number of informal uses.

Connectivity or legibility of streets across the site. This legibility of plan is reinforced by the scale, massing and design of buildings and the details of landscape and paving.

The Green is conceived as a large open space lined with formal terraced houses and paired villas. Immediately to the south are two streets linking the Green to the southern part of the site, providing all residents with a visual and physical connection to this space. These streets are much less formal in character and link the main Green to a network of smaller green spaces that draw inspiration from garden squares encountered in the centre of Chichester. The South and East squares provide a green views in and out of the site at key locations. A network of lanes and mews provides for discreet off-street private car parking and forms a quieter network of pedestrian, cycle routes and informal play zones. This legibility of plan is reinforced by the scale, massing and design of buildings and the details of landscape and paving.

Masterplan indicating common landscaped areas

The approach to the design has been to position the streets to create both a formality and intimacy between the homes,

and the ‘closeness’ of this approach has the key advantage of maximising natural street surveillance from over-looking

windows while maintaining privacy. An initial pre-application meeting was held

with the Secure By Design officer for the area

(CPDW), who confirmed that, in principle, the

proposed scheme design could achieve SBD

standard (parts 1 and 2).

At an early stage, the design team met with the Chichester City Council Waste officer to discuss the strategy for refuse and recycling at Roussillon...Wheelie bins are generally stored in rear gardens and will be discreetly screened at the rear of the garden. The bins are collected from rear mews so that no bin has to be brought through the house and so that bins do not clutter the street scene.
