The image below shows a masterplan for our development. It is intended as a general guide to show you how the properties, open spaces and internal roads will be arranged (development layout attached).
The layout has been designed to make an effective use of the site while working with the constraints that are presented to us. The layout has taken account of the trees around the site boundary and has inclusively integrated them into the public areas of the scheme. This ensures that the landscape character of the scheme is a continuing theme.
Our development will comprise 26 new homes, including a mixture of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom detached and semi-detached homes.
Above is a proposed Street View of Traveller's End. We hope to draw upon local materials and styles to keep the development in harmony with existing housing.
Approximately 35% of the new homes in our development will be provided as affordable housing. Affordable housing provision will comprise nine properties which will be made available for affordable rent and shared ownership through Guildford Housing.
Car parking will be provided in accordance with Surrey County Council’s Residential Parking and Design Guidance. In general, this will allow for two allocated spaces per home. Garages will not be included as recent surveys have shown that they are not always used for parking. Visitor parking spaces will also be provided.
Access and road layout
Vehicle access to the development will via the Tongham Copse development currently under construction. Our current proposals show the access road leading to the main part of the development, with block paving used as the surface material to tacitly reduce speeds and add interest to the street scene. The road network which enters the site from the adjacent Tongham
Copse site to the north, is formed of one principle route through the site. Private drives and a parking courtyard are accessed off the main site road.
Landscaping and open space
Our development will preserve all significant trees which are currently located within the site. Existing trees at the boundaries of the site will be enhanced with new planting to screen the new development from neighbouring housing and to act to increase the ecological biodiversity of the area.
