Land in Hampshire

Size:

170 hectare

Type:

Major scale mixed use development – circa 2,400 dwellings, school, a local centre, employment area and park & bus facilities

Brief:

Capacity Study

The proposed scheme will form a substantial extension to Southampton, north of the M27. Areas of ecological value benefitting from conservation designation scattered throughout the site, the flood plain and existing vegetation shaped the development, while taking advantage of the panoramic views across the site from the Victorian country mansion of Winslowe House.

Land west of Sandy, Central Bedfordshire

Size:

24 hectare

Type:

Mixed use development – circa 220 dwellings, including self-build plots, employment land and a care home

Brief:

Outline planning application with all maters reserved except access

Residential development on the site was restricted to a relatively small area mainly due to the flood plain constraint, but also due to existing vegetation and potential noise off the major vehicular route to the east. The proposal incorporates a large ecological open space with pedestrian links.

Millbrook Proving Ground

Size:

4 individual sites within the Proving Ground, total 15 hectare

Type:

up to 25,900 m2 commercial space (B1a, b and c Use Classes)

Brief: 

Outline planning application – permission granted April 2015; and BE1 Architects were appointed to produce a subsequent Design Code

The high profile setting for the proposed development within Millbrook Proving Ground, its proximity to the Greensand Ridge National Trail, and its exposure to long distance views from the sites’ surrounding, prompted a highly sensitive design approach to landscape and ecology, resulting in well screened design proposals.

A comprehensive Design Code has been submitted subsequent to obtaining the planning permission, as part of the discharge of conditions. The Design Code, accompanied by a set of regulating plans, was endorsed and supported by Central Bedfordshire Council.

Old Farm Park, Sidcup, London Borough of Bexley

Size:

1.5 hectare

Type:

Residential scheme, 60 dwellings (30 houses and 30 flats)

Brief:

Outline planning application (including a feasibility layout) – permission granted in May 2017. Subsequently BE1 proceeded to a reserved matters application, through to construction

The site lies to the north of the rail track and along a SINC – Site of Importance for Nature Conservation identified by the London Wildlife Trust to cover a wide buffer of wildlife habitat. The proposed scheme utilises the SINC as a visual amenity asset to the new dwellings. The green space of Old Farm Park to the west of the proposed residential scheme was incorporated into the design proposal as an additional amenity landscaped public open space.

The residential scheme, together with the landscaped park to the west, provide a permeable environment with improved pedestrians links.

Residential development at Newlands Road, Luton

Flanked by the M1 to the West and a local service road to the East, the development on this site has been designed to accommodate more than 400 one and two bed residential units for the Built to Rent market. Linear buildings flank the M1 to create sheltered court yards with views out in to the open countryside. The route of an underground gas main has been designed as the main access route across the site with surface parking. A large basement car park releases a large part of the site as a landscaped amenity area. The residential buildings have been designed to allow for modular construction, resulting in permeable buildings that can respond to the different conditions around the site.
