A development of 9 residential dwellings consisting of 3 terraced houses and 6 bungalows constructed on the site of a former residential property and out buildings.
BHA was commissioned by Bennett Homes to design the on-site private roads, private drives, foul water drainage (including a private pumping station), surface water drainage and soakaways, off-site footway works and off-site adoptable foul sewer.
Dwellings and garages are piled to deal with prior ground conditions and high water tables.
BHA negotiated an off-site private pumping main with Anglian Water and Norfolk County Council, and agreed the extent of off-site footway works with Norfolk County Council.
Due to a high water table soakaways were found to be unsuitable and a restricted discharge to existing brownfield run-off rates with onsite attenuation to a watercourse at the rear of the site was agreed with the Local Planning Authority.
On completion of the design BHA successfully applied for the relevant planning conditions to be discharged.
