Garth Hill

Intensification of a sustainably located brownfield site in Bracknell Town Centre.

Iceni Projects acted as planning consultant on behalf of CALA Homes on their Garth Hill scheme. The site, which is located just north of Bracknell town centre, and within Bracknell Forest Council is located less than 300m from the town centre shopping facilities, and around 900m from the railway station. The scheme will provide 89 homes on surplus land previously under the Council’s ownership.

The sustainable town centre location and brownfield characteristics of the site were favoured by the Council in its allocation of the land for residential development in their Site Allocations Plan, leading to the preparation and submission of a planning application for a wide mix of homes (including affordable housing) by CALA Homes.

Iceni Projects’ planning and engagement teams works proactively alongside the Council to develop a masterplan which will provide a high quality living environment for future residents, will promote sustainable transport methods by providing a pedestrian and cycle link toward the town centre, and will sit comfortably alongside the existing residential development to the east, and the school to the west.

The planning application, managed by Iceni Projects, received a positive recommendation from the Case Officer and received a unanimous resolution to grant planning permission at the Council’s March 2018 Planning Committee.
