Strawberry Villas, Amberley

ECE Architecture, alongside ECE Planning and Whittington Designer Homes, are delighted to have received resolution to grant at Planning Committee for a site in the South Downs National Park in Amberley. The development will provide 14 high quality residential homes.

The scheme will provide an eclectic mix of homes comprising of one to four bedrooms.

The application which went before Planning Committee on 16 January 2020 was the second application for this site. The revised scheme was significantly amended to reduce the development density, improve the relationship with the adjacent development, reduce the amount of hardstanding on the site and increase the amount of land given over to ecology. Members of the Planning Committee acknowledged the Applicant’s commitment to delivering a truly landscape-led approach to design, conforming to the idyllic village of Amberley.

A common theme throughout the design of the scheme is the use of red brick quoins with stone or flint. The homes have been designed to take cues from Amberley’s built heritage, infleunced by local design and material context.

The site was allocated in the Amberley Neighbourhood Plan and received support from the local community.
