We are pleased to have submitted a full planning application for 76 new affordable houses at the Valley, Stanmore on behalf of Winchester City Council’s New Homes Delivery. This will be their largest scheme to date.
The scheme provides a mixture of 2 and 3 bedroom houses and 1, 2 and 3 bedroom flats. The site nestles into the steeply sloping topography creating a new edge to the existing park. The buildings are positioned in response to existing and proposed patterns of movement through the site. The flats are pitched and facetted in response to the site geometry, reducing the perceived scale of the buildings and softening their impact on the landscape. The approach to the buildings form and appearance is derived from a contextual analysis of the existing Stanmore estate’s arts and crafts character and results in a significant new development that sits comfortably in its setting.
The application was developed through a comprehensive process of public engagement with the local community and will deliver much needed affordable housing for the city.
