On Site Amble
On Site Amble
We are working with Home Group on a residential scheme on the outskirts of Amble to provide much needed housing in Northumberland. The phased development at Longstone Manor will see a total of 185 homes built over the next few years.
A mixed blend of family homes is being constructed across the site, including two-, three- and four-bedroom houses, along with one-bedroom tyneside flats and bungalows. The development includes homes for affordable rent and shared ownership, as well as outright sale through Persona Homes.
The neighbourhood design has a key focus on public open space with a rich biodiversity to maintain and encourage wildlife. A Sustainable Urban Drainage Scheme will also be constructed.
Esh has been appointed as the design and build contractor and will work in partnership with Curtins, P+HS Architects, Storm Tempest, AA Projects Ltd and Southern Green to deliver the scheme.
The weather taking a slight turn, the perfect back drop to some of the pristine white render homes. A mixture of different brick types, render and weatherboard cladding materials were chosen across the site and identified in key locations, to respect the local context and provide modern homes.
A quick video showing one of the key focal points within the site; an area of public open space with enhanced drainage and landscaping features. A mixture of detached, semi-detached and terraces houses are fronting onto this area, removing vehicles from these spaces, enhancing opportunities for safe play and use.
