Hornbeam Close, Horsham

PLEASE NOTE: this consultation page is now closed 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.

Hornbeam Close presents an exciting opportunity to provide new affordable housing in Horsham. The proposal presented by Saxon Weald includes the demolition of existing garages (2 blocks totalling 12 garages) and the construction of 2 dwellings.

The design makes use of the existing site access with 2x affordable two-bedroom flats fronting onto the corner of Hornbeam Close and Laurel Walk.

Saxon Weald is working in conjunction with MH Architects and 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 clay roof tile. Window proportions respect the surrounding residential vernacular whilst ensuring ample light penetrates into the living spaces.

Parking is integrated into the site layout with 2 allocated spaces per dwelling and an additional visitor space (5 spaces 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 and arboricultural consultants have been commissioned to ensure the potential for new habitats and biodiversity is optimised. Existing trees will be retained where possible and enhanced with new planting including low level shrubs to site boundaries and small trees throughout the front and rear gardens.
