Master Plan

Our proposals for the land North of Burdon Road, Ryhope
Our proposals will include up to 560 new homes with a variety of 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms including affordable homes.  The proposed consortium development would see up to 950 homes built in total to the north of Burdon Lane, Ryhope.

Our plans also include extensive areas of open space are proposed including around 18 hectares of ‘Sustainable Alternative Natural Greenspace’ (SANG) which will run through the site, with new footpaths to ensure this area is accessible and provides a good quality recreational space. 
 
A network of green corridors, including a landscaped corridor along Nettles Lane, will contribute towards  enhancing biodiversity.  Landscape buffers will be introduced around the site boundaries to provide buffers between the existing residential areas and a series of Sustainable Urban Drainage System ponds will be incorporated into the landscaping scheme to ensure surface water run-off is appropriately managed on-site and to provide wildlife habitats.
 

Homes proposed

New housing proposals include 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes.

Design inspiration has been taken from the character of nearby housing estates to ensure the development will be in keeping with the local area whilst keeping its own identity. There will be a mix of detached, semi-detached and terraced designs built with traditional materials in a variety of designs.

 

Street scenes

The appearance of the new homes will be reflective of the local area to ensure the development is in keeping with existing houses nearby.
 
The proposed homes will be built with traditional materials including red brick and a mix of red and grey roof tiles to help create a characterful community.  

The development itself will be divided into a number of character areas, where homes within each character area will have a unique finish, adding charm and making it easy to find your way around. 

Our proposals features

Connectivity

The primary site access will be from a proposed new roundabout on the B1286.  A link road will connect this roundabout to the existing roundabout at the end of Etham Road.  Burdon Road will provide access to the south western corner of the site. 

A landscaped multi-user route will be provided at Nettles Lane  and a series of pedestrian and cycle routes will be provided to ensure the site is accessible and links are provided to the community facilities, open spaces and the wider area.  To ensure access to public transport is easy and convenient, a local bus route will be incorporated through the development.   

Ecology

Ecological survey work has been ongoing at the proposed development site.  
This has focused on gaining an understanding of the existing habitats and species currently present.  The results of this survey work have been used to inform the design of the development so that future use can be maintained and protected.  

Specific consideration has been given as to how existing, habitats can be enhanced, so that the number of plant and animal species that they support (their biodiversity value) will be increased. The creation of new ecologically valuable habitats and open green

Drainage

In accordance with national planning policy, a site specific flood risk assessment has been carried out. 
The risk assessment concluded a low to medium risk for flooding from overland flow, and therefore proposed mitigation measures to reduce the risk of flooding from this source.

Our approach features

Amenities and Facilities

We aim to support the communities in which we build. One way in which we do this is by providing new facilities that local people will benefit from.

 
As part of our proposal, we plan to deliver a range of new facilities to complement existing services within the wider community.  We’ll provide a Neighbourhood centre which we propose will offer retail units, a pub and health facilities.  A new primary school with 3G sports pitch and multi-user game area as well as play areas with equipment for children will be created as well as various informal play areas throughout our development, providing a place for families to join together.  

Economic Benefits

We want to deliver new homes and facilities that positively integrate with and enhance the local community.
Our plans include improving the local highways including the widening of Burdon Road and a new link road, Ryhope to Doxford Park, will be built to relieve traffic in and out of the city.  
 

Open space

Ensuring our residents and the local community have access to beautiful green open spaces is a key consideration.

Extensive areas of open space are proposed including around 18 hectares of ‘Sustainable Alternative Natural Greenspace’ (SANG) that run through the site, with new footpaths to ensure this area is accessible and provides a good quality recreational space. 

A network of green corridors, including a landscaped corridor along Nettles Lane, will contribute towards  enhancing biodiversity.  Landscape buffers will be introduced around the site boundaries to provide buffers between the existing residential areas and a series of Sustainable Urban Drainage System ponds will be incorporated into the landscaping scheme to ensure surface water run-off is appropriately managed on-site and to provide wildlife habitats.
