The scheme includes a total of 60 new homes, both for social rent and intermediate tenures, split between 20 family houses and 40 modern one- and two-bedroom flats. The development’s U-shaped layout forms a generous central courtyard which fronts onto Acre Lane. Providing an active frontage and views over the development, individual terraces and balconies have been designed to provide residents with a sense of security as well as views over the landscaped courtyard or vibrant high street.
The new homes have been developed to overcome concerns about the impact on neighbouring properties’ privacy. The flats have been specifically designed with generous floor-to-ceiling heights, in proportion with the Edwardian terraces on Acre Lane. All homes have been designed to maximise natural light and have been carefully planned with accessibility in mind, offering dwellings for wheelchair users alongside six disabled parking bays.
