For this project, our client is a residential management company acting on behalf of the occupiers of the housing development.

The Site

The site extends to approximately 0.54 hectares with forty-four units in five two-storey apartment blocks constructed some thirty years ago. The grounds are laid to approximately 30% parking and other hard-standing, with the remainder to soft landscape.

At the east side of the site are two mature lime trees that were substantially disturbed during construction of the housing development.

At the west side, there is closed canopy tree cover comprising mainly maturing mixed broadleaf trees and three post-mature oaks. The post-mature oaks in particular were substantially disturbed during construction of the housing development.
