Following a successful series of planning consents, works have now commenced on the Mortimer Close site in Kings Worthy, Winchester, to provide 4 new semi-detached dwellings. The scheme is being carried out by local developers Shorewood Homes following a full detailed design package prepared by Radley House.
Planning Permission has been granted by Cotswold District Council for 171 Assisted Living Units together with a central facilities building providing Spa & Restaurant facilities, forming a new care village. It’s planned that the land at Siddington Park Farm in Cirencester will be developed later this year and Radley House Partnership will continue to provide detail design services throughout the latter work stages.
Following the success of the new entrance stair to the White Tower designed by Radley House Partnership we are now overseeing the refurbishment of the spiral exit stair. The high volume of visitors to the Tower, in the order of 1.5 million per year, had caused the Flamsteed Tower stair to become worn out.
The brief from Historic Royal Palaces required an ingenious solution to protect the underlying Norman stone steps and to cater for visitor impact. A bespoke metal framework is to be concealed beneath the oak joinery.
A significant part of the project comprised the planning of temporary egress and evacuation routes, leading to a significant scaffolding structure erected to the north elevation.
Works are on track to be completed in June.
Will success cost the earth?
We are proud (albeit minor) sponsors of Sutton United and their manager Paul Doswell.
At present the team are in a healthy position with a very good chance to be promoted into the football league for the first time in the clubs history.
There is only one problem, Sutton’s Gander Green playing surface is a 3G pitch - which is used constantly and to great benefit to the club.
As an artificial turf pitch is not allowed Football League and must be replaced by grass.
Should they still push for promotion?
