Winchester City Council
Building on previous projects we have done with Winchester City Council we are currently delivering a full planning permission for over 75 affordable houses and flats in the Stanmore area of Winchester. We worked with landscape architects and officers to develop a masterplan for The Valley, exploring how a significant development of social housing could be effectively delivered within a large public space. We coordinated and led on a series of public consultation events and workshops that have established support for the scheme. It is an innovative development on a complex sloping site. The architecture is sympathetic to the prevailing character whilst developing innovative housing typologies that achieve Lifetime Homes.
We have worked proactively with the council and consultant team to drive value in the scheme, identifying savings and added value throughout the design development process. We are also currently retained to prepare working drawings on a smaller infill site, having successfully achieved planning permission for five 1 bed units on a former garage site.
