We are delighted to have been granted planning permission working with Sigma Homes for 20 new build affordable and market dwellings on currently vacant farmland in Haywards Heath, West Sussex across 11 different house types on this well-connected site.
Working as part of a wider consultant team, important design decisions were taken to ensure that the proposals were sympathetic to the existing landscape and local area. Including the retention of boundary trees, reduction of hard standing and adequate space given between dwellings and adjacent properties.
The Scheme adopts a traditional Sussex style that is appropriate to its rural-urban fringe location, utilising a distinctive palette of materials, colours, and textures which vary to communicate the different house types. Including plain clay and slate roof tiles, tile-hanging with feature club tiles, facing brick and fibre-cement weatherboarding.
The traditional architectural detailing maintains the conventional style ensuring that the proposals sit comfortably within the local context. Each dwelling enjoys associated amenity garden space with appropriate site access roads and parking arrangements in either private garages, driveways or visitor parking overlooked by primary windows.
