Architects Submit Plans for Affordable Sanctuary Homes

A total of 19 new affordable homes could be built in Scarborough and Hull, following the submission of two planning applications by Leeds-based Brewster Bye Architects, for Sanctuary Housing Association.

The Scarborough plans include four new semi-detached two bedroom bungalows on Link Walk in the Eastfield area of the town, which will be available for affordable rent. All four bungalows will have generous front and rear gardens as well as two parking spaces each.

The scheme in Hull would see 15 new two and three affordable bedroom homes being built at Dales Lodge for rent. The two-storey high quality homes will all be built within spacious plots, with generous gardens and sufficient parking spaces. The plans would also include the creation of internal access roads and landscaping for the development.

Director, Mark Henderson, from Brewster Bye Architects, said: “In Scarborough the properties will be constructed in red brick, in order to fit in with the existing residential developments in the area. The soldier course windows heads and cills will project, in order to provide extra detailing and added interest to the frontage, and each property will have a covered entrance with a canopy above the front door. All pitched roofs will be covered with grey slate effect concrete interlocking roof tiles and grey window frames and doors are also proposed for the bungalows.

“In Hull, the Dales Lodge properties will no doubt appeal to the general market, with a simple palette of buff brick and blue brick features, grey slate effect tiled roofs and grey casement windows, the development will have a traditional feel but with modern elements.”

Brewster Bye Architects has worked for Sanctuary Housing Association, the UK’s leading housing and care provider, for almost 20 years, and is included on the company’s Northern, North West, North East, East and Midlands frameworks, designing much needed affordable and older persons homes across the country.

Over the years, Brewster Bye has designed several hundred successful affordable schemes in areas including Sheffield, Leeds, Derby and Telford for Sanctuary Homes. Recent schemes include the transformation of a former South Yorkshire school in Shiregreen, Sheffield into the stunning Sycamore Heights development of 46 homes for the over 55’s, as well as Rose Manor and Oleander House in the West Midlands, where Brewster Bye designed 86 one and two bedroom apartments for the over 55’s, and 12 independent apartments for adults with learning difficulties, all within the vibrant Telford Millennium Community. The architects also worked on 120 affordable homes for Sanctuary Homes, all set within the Middleton estate in Leeds.

Mark added: “We work on all types of commercial projects across all sectors, as well as lots of residential schemes, and we have also established an unrivalled reputation for our work in affordable housing. We now boast a vast portfolio of successful projects throughout the UK that we have delivered alongside leading housing associations, developers, construction firms and public sector organisations.

“In addition to these two planning applications, we’re currently working on several live schemes for Sanctuary Housing Association, with one on site at Burness Road in Sheffield and another in Cambridge, which is at the design stage.”
