Orford Road - Five Unit Scheme
Five bespoke detached raised bungalows.
Client: The Egerton Trust.
Architecture: George Calver
NUKO Planning was appointed by the Egerton Trust to offer planning consultant advice on a constrained backland site in Orford, Warrington Borough Council. Earlier proposals on the site had presented conflicts in terms of neighbouring residential amenity (overlooking) and highways, resulting in high levels of public objection and political interest from members.
After a successful outcome for a single bungalow in July 2020 (see case study: Orford Single Bungalow).
Nuko planning was retained by the Egerton Trust to maximise the number of units on the site. we provided pre-planning project management and concultancy working in close liaison with award winning architects GCA and highways consultancy SCP, to arrive at a scheme of five bespoke bungalows with raised finished floor levels to respond to the 1 in 100 year flood risk on the site.
The scheme was recommend for approval by WBC and taken to committee in October 2023. democratic oversight resulted in the application being dismissed. as at February 2024 the case is being determined by the inspectorate.
