We were appointed by our client to provide them with information to submit to the local planning authority to satisfy landscape related conditions and to provide them with a package of information to enable them to tender the external works. This included the production of a general arrangement drawings, planting plan with schedules and detailed section and a full NBS specification.
To the east corner of the site, outside of the plot boundary, an existing listed building is located. Our proposals needed to interface with the existing openings of this building. In addition our proposals needed to accommodate the varying levels of the existing and proposed site boundaries.
To the rear of the site existing trees are located within the plot boundary. Our proposals enabled the retention of the majority of these trees, and our considered design minimises the potential impact of the proposed development on their existing roots.
The needs of parking to the rear of the building was carefully considered to ensure the easy manoeuvring of vehicles in and out of the site. The car park area functions as a shared space and ‘carriageway’ widths have been purposefully kept narrow.
To the north elevation of the site small private gardens are proposed to the three residential units. These areas needed to accommodate some planting, paving and a bin store enclosure.
