THE ORCHARD, IFIELD, WEST SUSSEX
Spacious apartments in a green setting
We were appointed by affordable housing provider Moat, in partnership with Higgins Homes, to prepare a detailed planning application for 176 homes at Ifield.
The scheme provides 50% affordable housing in a range of tenures. The layout and design of individual homes shows no distinction between affordable and market types, it simply refl ects the masterplan’s aim to create a safe environment for family life and activity.
The site is characterised by mature trees in woodland and hedgerows, and ponds and ditches with significant aquatic habitats. The layout was carefully devised to retain almost all of these assets, which give a wellestablished character to the development and great balcony settings to the light and airy apartments.
