The scheme consists of a number of smaller developments around the borough. Each site has a communal landscaped area that has been designed as integrated into the development by the lead architect for that package. As part of the first phase, as well as residential there will be one enlarged community centre, games court, play areas on each development and a new library or community space located at the ground floor of the scheme at Station Road.
Brick by Brick worked collaboratively with the Local Planning Authority to devise a bespoke planning process to tie all of these applications into three tranches. This was required to maximise the affordable housing solution across the programme on these small sites. The pre-application process started in Spring 2016 with applications submitted by December 2016 and all determined by Spring 2017.
