Crest Nicholson, Houndwood Street


This site lasted approximately 2 years. The design of the houses was based on a new standard in sustainable living. There are various different green spaces within the development including formal avenues, wild habitat areas, landscaped zones and a village green.

We installed reed beds and pond planting which contribute to surface water management.

There is an large amount of willow biomass planting, together with a clover lawn, wildflower grass meadows, and a football pitch.

Lime Tree Square consists of a hard area in the site planted with 33 Semi Mature Lime Trees.

We had a community day where the local scouts got involved in planting the reed beds.
