Ingleton Wood were engaged by Orbit Homes to develop proposals for an exception policy site on the edge of the village of Reydon, near Southwold, Suffolk. There is an acute shortage of affordable homes in the village, due in the main to the popularity of holiday and second homes in the area.
The site is just less than a Hectare, and consisted of agricultural land at the northern fringe of the village. A scheme of 23 homes was developed, centred round a new village green. The proposals include a range of property types including houses, bungalows and flats.
A traditional design style was utilised, as befitting the sensitive site location. The elevations include red facing bricks with areas of render. Projecting brick plinths and the occasional oriel window adds interest. The buildings were constructed using traditional brick and block construction. The existing hedge to the road frontage had to be removed to accommodate the visibility splays for the new entrance road, and new footpaths. A new hedge was therefore planted to help retain the street scene.
