Planning consent was granted by Sheffield City Council to demolish the former Periwinkle Pub on land off Aldham House Lane and the construction of 14 dwellings. A number of planning conditions were imposed by the Local Authority including the requirement to provide details for the onsite landscaping prior to construction and the need to achieve a Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3 rating.
Encon Associates landscape architect worked closely with the clients Ecologist to ensure the proposals not only gained the highest possible CSH credits under the Eco section, but also met with the approval of Sheffield City Council to discharge the conditions of the planning approval.
The existing site contained very little in the way of ecological features and therefore via imaginative design, the biodiversity of the site was enhanced whilst providing practical design for this residential development.
