We were appointed by our client to prepare information to discharge landscape related conditions for this mixed use scheme. We were then requested to provide drawings and a specification to enable the tender of the external works and select a suitable contractor.
Our proposals needed to accommodate the requirements of the appointed ecologist so as to achieve the desired number of ECO credits within BREEAM. A shared space with pedestrian access to the communal residential entrance and car parking need to be accommodated to the rear of the building. The detail of the private ground floor patios needed to be considered so as to provide them with some defensible space from the adjacent communal gardens. The development boundary with the adjacent public footpath needed to be carefully considered so as to provided an appropriate barrier suitable for the development’s location.
Careful attention to ground levels was required so as to minimise the likely damage to the trees adjacent to the plot boundary. This detail was prepared to discharge a specific planning condition.
