Taylor Wimpey is to develop a total of 40 homes consisting a mix of houses and a small number of apartments at Greenside.
In addition, we will also be constructing new roads, car parking, drainage, landscaping and public open space.
The design of our proposed development has been informed by a number of important considerations including:
1) Dialogue with Arun District Council.
2) Dialogue with Ferring Parish Council.
3) Relevant good design guidance.
4) An assessment of the sites opportunities and constraints.
5) An assessment of how the proposal can most successfully respect the neighbouring properties
Important layout elements include:
1) One site entrance, as approved by the outline planning permission.
2) A scheme of 40 homes, offering a mix of 2, 3 & 4 bedroom homes.
3) 2,304 Square metres of open space as approved by the outline planning permission
4) All dwellings designed to respect the neighbouring properties.
Resident reptiles relocated to new homes
As preparations continue for work to get under way at Greenside, we’ve been busy finding a new home for some of the site’s current residents.
Lizards have been successfully relocated thanks to Taylor Wimpey!
The approved planning application for this hotly-anticipated collection of 40 properties off Littlehampton Road includes a comprehensive strategy to ensure existing wildlife species are protected.
As part of this, specialist ecology consultants RPS have just completed a relocation programme to move a population of common lizards and slow worms from the development site to a new habitat at nearby Hayes Farm.
The project involved seven separate surveys for each species being carried out at the site over a period of two months to identify the size of the reptile populations, with a total of six lizards and 11 slow worms being transferred to their new home at the end of the programme.
Alex Sciarretta, Land and Planning Director for Taylor Wimpey Southern Counties, says: “At Taylor Wimpey we take our responsibilities to protect and enhance wildlife habitats very seriously indeed, and all of our new developments include detailed plans to mitigate the ecological impact of our work on the land where we build.
“In this case we commissioned ecology experts RPS to ensure that existing reptile populations at our Greenside site are safely transferred to another suitable local habitat before any development works get under way, in line with the requirements of our planning permission.
“The detailed survey works carried out over a prolonged period enabled RPS to be sure that all of the common lizards and slow worms which were active at the site could be identified and removed, and we’re now looking forward to launching our new development very soon.”
