New housing development at Pease Pottage, West Sussex
Glanville has been working with Thakeham Group to deliver a stunning new residential development at Pease Pottage, West Sussex.
Our transport and highways team prepared detailed design proposals for a package of off-site highway works as part of the major residential development that includes over 600 new homes, a primary school, a shop and a coffee shop, a community centre, public open space and a pavilion.
We undertook a detailed review of the findings of the Transport Assessment that accompanied the planning application, to determine whether all of the highway works recommended therein were completely necessary. This review focused on whether the cumulative impacts of the development were severe rather than trying to achieve nil-detriment as a measure of performance.
Through traffic detailed modelling, Glanville successfully demonstrated that some of the recommended improvements offered little or no benefit and could therefore be omitted from the scheme. These findings have now been accepted by West Sussex County Council as local highway authority and the works started on site this summer.
Meanwhile, our structural engineering team has provided structural design services to the construction of the £4M new primary school to serve the new community which opened in September. The school caters for 210 pupils in 5 state-of-the-art classrooms and an early years nursery. The development also features a main hall, library, multi-functional space and a special educational needs room.
