189 Hangleton Way

Hangleton Way, Hove
Client: Southern Housing Group
Scale: 23 apartments & 10 houses
Status: Planning approved

We have gained planning approval to demolish a derelict former public house and erect 10 new family houses, alongside a three storey apartment block on the site.

The apartment block compromises of 4 storeys accommodating 23 flats. On the lower ground floor we are proposing a generous community space, bin storage and bike storage. The flats are a mixture of one and two bedroom flats which all match or exceed the national space standard and will benefit from a terrace, built in storage, and an allocated off road parking space. Appropriate screening has been designed by the landscape architect to ensure minimal overlook between houses and flats.

10 new houses will be also be built; four 2B4P dwellings and six 3B5P dwellings. All houses exceed the national space standard, benefit from built in storage and have generous living space suitable for families with each house having a rear amenity space and rear access. Bin stores are proposed towards the front of the properties alongside space for off road parking.

The buildings will primarily be composed of sand coloured brick with patterned header and recessed brick features. Teal glazed brick accent will emulate the roof of the former public house on site.

We are working in partnership with Nicholas Dexter Studio to design landscaping that enhances local biodiversity and improves the current street scene. This will be achieved by planting over 50 new trees which are mostly located around the site boundary to soften the relationship with the neighbouring properties. There are also 3 triangular set-aside areas at each corner of the site which will be underplanted with a mix of native plants and wildflower meadow species to attract birds, bees and insects.
