Ingleton Wood were engaged by Havebury Housing Partnership to develop 33 new dwellings on the site of the former Priors Inn Public House in Bury St Edmunds.
The site occupies a prominent corner at the gateway to the Priors estate in Bury St Edmunds. Previously the site was occupied by the former Priors Inn Public House and two neighbouring bungalows which were also purchased by Havebury to enable the development.
After detailed negotiations with the Local Planning Authority, Ingleton Wood architectural and planning services facilitated a detailed planning submission for the erection of 33 new affordable dwellings, this included 12 one bedroom flats and 21 two and three bedroom dwellings.
The scheme provides a traditional looking development with a mixture of gentle contemporary detailing. A mixture of white render and traditional brickwork have been used for the dwelling facades to retain the aesthetic of the surrounding area. Ridge level sun pipes have been used throughout the development to provide not only a traditional theme to the dwellings but to provide natural sunlight to the first floor hallways. Additional detailing such as glazed balconies and aluminium rainwater pipes have also been used to raise the overall quality of the development.
This landmark development was designed to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3 as well as achieving accreditation from Secured by Design. Structurally insulated panels (SIPS) were used to construct the dwellings and this aided us in easily surpassing the basic building regulation standards.
