DWW Design have recently submitted plans to the Borough of Broxbourne for 104 no. residential units on the former Turnford Surfacing site in Hoddesdon.
This ambitious and challenging project involved consultation with a number of high profile stakeholders including the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority, the Canal and Rivers Trust and the Borough of Broxbourne.
The site is also in close proximity to the Grade I Listed Rye House Gatehouse, forming part of the Rye House moated enclosure and gatehouse which is a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
The main project aim was to re-model the brownfield site to provide a dramatically improved frontage to the River Lee towpath, affording new public access to new landscaped areas within the site, and also achieving visual and environmental regeneration in the wider area.
The scheme is in a sustainable location and also incorporates additional disabled car parking and covered cycle parking for Rye House Station, a short walk away. Pedestrian safety will be improved through the widening of the River Lee towpath, and the introduction of a new pedestrian crossing point across Rye Road directly in front of the site.
