Drove Lane, Yapton – Residential Development Scheme

We will shortly be submitting a planning application to Arun District Council for a 20 dwelling scheme in Yapton.

Drove Lane

The proposed scheme is a detailed planning application made in response to Arun District Council’s Interim Housing Statement (January 2021). The Statement does not introduce a new policy but aims to speed up decision making and invite suitable sized housing and placemaking applications on ‘deliverable’ sites in the right locations in Arun.  The Statement provides a ‘Red, Amber, Green’ (RAG) tick-list tool looking at national and local policies to help applicants to identify and address some of the key matters which once addressed, may speed up the decision-making process. The application has been tested against the RAG checklist and has been found to be compliant with all the criteria.

The site has been selected following a submission to Arun District Council Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment HELAA (site NEWY17) wherein 2020 the Council identified the site as developable. This is a high-level assessment by the Council when considering what might come forward for development in the future, it is a good indicator to landowners that their site might be suitable for development if all the elements of the scheme are acceptable.

If permitted the site will deliver 20 units in total. As a detailed planning application, this will speed the timescale to delivery compared to an outline planning application. 14 of the units will be market dwellings and the remaining 6 affordable dwellings (30%)

Charmans Field, Runcton – 113 dwelling planning application submitted

We are pleased to have submitted a planning application to Chichester District Council for a113 dwelling scheme in Runcton.

Runcton

The proposed scheme is a hybrid planning application (part detailed and part outline) to meet Chichester District Council’s Interim Housing Position Statement - Housing Delivery requirements issued in June 2020. This is a temporary policy to encourage housing delivery to meet the current housing crisis. The Council are not delivering new housing through planning permissions at the pace required and therefore they must look beyond the local plan sites to support other suitable sites for housing development. This is known as the ‘presumption in favour of sustainable development’.

The site has been selected following a submission to Chichester District Council Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment HELAA (site HNM0013) wherein 2021 the Council identified the site as developable. This is a high-level assessment by the Council when considering what might come forward for development in the future, what is a good indicator to landowners that their site might be suitable for development if all of the elements of the scheme are acceptable. 

The site is expected to deliver 113 units in total. 26 of the units form the detailed application for the first phase of the hybrid planning application. The remaining 87 units are in outline with all matters reserved. The proposal will deliver 34 affordable dwellings (30%) including 10 First Homes.

Net zero carbon

Playing our part in achieving a net zero carbon economy

The Government’s zero-carbon aim for a ‘net zero carbon economy’ by 2050 will require a wholesale step change across all sectors of the UK economy. For real estate this will mean fundamental changes to not just the way we provide and manage the energy used to run our homes and places of work but also to the way they are built, constructed and maintained.

At a national level, the decarbonisation of the grid and a switch to the electrification of energy will mean occupiers and homeowners will fuel their homes through renewable sources. The European Climate Foundation’s diagram shows the effectiveness of the various measures to reduce carbon. The key element Landlink Estates can control is the Building Envelope by designing and constructing buildings that minimise carbon in their construction and using materials which retain heat and energy. In fact, retaining heat within buildings is a crucial action to minimise energy wastage. Proper cavity wall & loft insulation combined with double glazing effectively seal a building, not doing this in tandem with the decarbonisation of the Grid is akin to scoring an own goal if we are to meet our zero carbon targets. Inside the property occupiers will also be able to better control their energy consumption through smart technology further reducing energy wastage. The advent of Greener technology such as heat pumps and hybrid heat pumps will make the move away from gas boilers simpler and provide greater choice for the consumer. A UK Government report commented that currently only 4.5% of buildings currently utilise low-carbon heating but by making the Government’s changes to the way we produce, manage and consume energy the this will change to 90% by 2050.

Net zero carbon

At Landlink Estates we are accelerating our contribution to meeting the Government’s target through our new homes development strategy. Our approach to sustainable design and innovation is a primary focus for our design teams to achieve a sustainable, affordable, and comfortable home by focusing on three key target areas:

Energy and CO2 Emissions

  • Reduction in the amount of energy used by each home
  • Reduction in fuel bills for homeowners
  • Improved comfort and control of internal environments in both hot and cold months
  • Accessible Electric Vehicle charging for all homeowners and visitors

Water

  • Reduction in water consumption and water wastage
  • Reduction in water bills for homeowners
  • Use of rainwater harvesting

Materials

  • Improvement in sustainable building specification such as the use of high levels of insulation
  • Increase in use of recycled materials and re-cycling of materials during construction
  • Increased volume and quality of supplementary sources such as use of PV’s and solar panels

We are also looking at how our solar energy business can directly provide energy to our developments as well as feeding into the Grid. Our priority is to make schemes ‘self-sufficient’ where geography allows. We have also exceeded the planning requirements for the use of renewable energy sources on our most recent residential schemes. By increasing the provision of PV panels on dwellings and the promotion of Electric Vehicle usage through additional charging points.

As an office occupier we have accelerated our plans of becoming a net zero occupier, by switching to renewable energy tariffs, embarking on an office refurbishment programme focused on improving the thermal efficiency of the head office as well as enhancing technology that will further reduce the level of commuting our staff undertake each year.

Volunteering Day at Chestnut Tree House

Landlink Estates Ltd along with the larger Langmead group took time off to volunteer for Chestnut Tree House. Eight willing volunteers spent the day getting their hands mucky in the stunning surrounds of the Chestnut Tree House near Arundel.

Chestnut Tree House

Digging, rotavating, clearing, moving and daffodil dead-heading were just a few of the tasks undertaken.

Chestnut Tree House rely on volunteer groups to help sustain the hospice which supports infants to nineteen year olds who are struggling with progressive life-shortening conditions. The charity needs to raise just shy of 3.9 million pounds each year to continue running and relies heavily of donations.

As such Chestnut Tree House have been chosen as the Langmead group chosen charity, so watch this space to see what we will do next.
