Our proposed scheme seeks to create a high-quality development that can fulfill the local need for new homes while respecting the character and heritage of the surrounding area.
We are proposing to build a mixture of 1, 2, 3 & 4 bedroom properties, including apartments, semi-detached and terraced homes.
Our designs include a contemporary style of architecture, with the use of a crisp materials pallet of roof tiles and occasional cladding.
Changes to our proposals
Following responses to our public consultation in March, Taylor Wimpey has since made alterations to the development layout.
Our amended proposals include the following key elements:
• 106 high-quality new homes
• A mixture of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom properties
• Parking has been relocated away from public open space
• Reduced number of 3 storey dwellings
• Increased on street landscaping
• While the design of the access road on to the residential site has been agreed prior to our public exhibition, a £224,500 contribution will be made to Transport for London for Highway Improvements
• We are currently reviewing our apartment designs to ensure we deliver a solution that will be in keeping with the surrounding area
Our revised layout has taken into account the comments and concerns of local residents.
Artists impression of how the new layout will look.
Our proposed development will preserve all significant trees which are currently located within the site. Existing healthy boundary trees and hedgerow will also be retained and enhanced with new planting to help screen the development from neighbouring properties.
The majority of the site is of negligible ecological value. No evidence was found of any dormice, nesting bats, Great Crested Newts or badger sets. Ecological enhancements have been recommended and have been included within the planning design, including treelines augmentation and protection, tree planting, use of log piles/bird boxes.
Car parking will be provided at the development in accordance with the Royal Borough of Kingston’s parking guidance. This is illustrated in the table below.
