GHK were appointed by Fairview New Homes to re-examine the design of part of a major housing scheme In Hunton Bridge.
Our brief was to address concerns raised by the Planning Inspector following a Public Inquiry.
Although sited in a Conservation Area, no appraisal had been prepared by the LPA to identify the specific features that contributed to its special interest. We therefore prepared an appraisal to identify those factors which contributed to the local distinctiveness and which the scheme should seek to reinforce.
Following agreement of the Appraisal by the LPA, we then redesigned the Bridge Road frontage element of the scheme. Meetings were held with the local amenity groups and conservation officer to present the Conservation Area analysis and revised proposals which were then successfully submitted for planning.
