'Housing for Varying Needs' which means that our new build housing is designed to provide for people's different needs and circumstances. People have various housing needs and these will almost certainly change through a lifetime. The built form of all housing should be flexible enough to accommodate a range of these needs. Housing for Varying Needs is a design guide to achieve a degree of flexibility, suit people of different abilities be fit for purpose.

'Secure by Design' is a Police initiative to design out crime through accreditation of security standards as part of the planning process. Designing out crime reduces the vulnerability of a property to crime by correcting risks such as poor lighting and vulnerable car parking that may be designed inadvertently in our environment over time. Some of design elements included in our new build houses are:

  • Rear fencing at 1.8m high
  • Improved surveillance by designing windows that overlook  common areas
  • Improved door and window specifications
  • Avoidance of dark recessed areas
  • Door viewers

Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) is a legal requirement on all sites and requires us to manage rain water in a more sustainable way. Drainage from the houses will continue to be drained into the existing system but rain water will be directed to what is called a SUDS basin located at the lowest part of the site.
