Brookfield Garth, Harrogate
Bowman Riley has prepared designs for Brookfield Garth, a new residential development on a vacant plot of land in the North Yorkshire village of Hampsthwaite, five miles from Harrogate for developer Stonebridge Homes.
The site consists of 1.24 hectare of overgrown grassed field with a public right of way to be retained and a number of trees with preservation orders.
Adjacent to the site is a variety of existing dwellings varying from multi-storey family homes to single storey bungalows each uniquely built with various stones, bricks and renders.
We prepared initial feasibility sketch schemes for a mixture of 36 new of 2-3 bedroom semi-detached and 4-5 bedroom detached properties with generous parking allocation and rear gardens. 40 per cent affordable housing will be provided in accordance with Harrogate Borough Council’s policy.
The development site has been recently allocated for residential use to help meet the housing land supply for the Harrogate area.
We supported the planning application process by submitting a Design and Access Statement to submission to Harrogate Borough Council, which resulted in outline planning consent. This was then followed by approval of reserved matters.
