Numbers 33-57 Ash Road, Southwater

Please note this consultation is now closed and for reference only.

Saxon Weald is a local housing association providing more than 6700 homes across Sussex and Hampshire. It is a not-for-profit Community Benefit Society, with the money made from rents being re-invested in the management, maintenance and building of homes. Saxon Weald is regulated by the Regulator of Social Housing.

Numbers 33-57 Ash Road presents an exciting opportunity to provide new affordable housing in Southwater, Horsham. The proposal presented by Saxon Weald includes the construction of 3 dwellings. The design makes use of the existing garage site with 3 x affordable two-bedroom, four person, homes.

Working in conjunction with MH Architects, the scheme has been carefully considered with regards to the sensitivity of the location and this has informed the scale, appearance, orientation and amount of accommodation being proposed.

All dwellings will be two storeys in height and incorporate traditional, local materials deployed in a modern manner, such as red multi-stock facing brick and grey roof tile. Window proportions respect the surrounding residential vernacular whilst ensuring ample light penetrates the living spaces.

Parking is integrated into the site layout with 7 new unallocated spaces provided in total.

Sustainability is a key principle of the development proposal; the properties have been designed using the key principles of net zero carbon buildings with a focus on prioritising energy efficiency.

In addition to this, ecological consultants have been commissioned to ensure the potential for new habitats and biodiversity is optimised. Existing trees will be retained where possible and the landscaping will be integrated into the street front and parking courtyard area.
