High-quality, evenly distributed, mixed tenure new housing, including variety of different sized apartments and a building dedicated to independent living.
High construction standards with good U-values, low air permeability and carefully controlled thermal bridging are utilised to achieve highly-efficient sustainable homes.
Rejuvenated landscape increases overall amount of open green space and retains existing trees and amenities, while varied paving defines uses and prioritises pedestrian routes.
RPA were invited to submit a feasibility proposal for the environmental improvement and new build programme, and participate in public consultation with local residents.
