2nd Presentation Boards - Orchard Brook Long Melford

INTRODUCTION
SB Living have been through an extensive design and consultation process in relation to the old Fleetwood Caravan
site since August 2014.
Since the first Public Exhibition in December 2014, SB Living have been incorporating changes suggested by local
residents and various Babergh Council officers into the designs for the scheme where possible and appropriate.
SB Living are keen to finalise the design and will be taking account of further comments coming from this second
Public Exhibition so that a planning application can be put together.
The intention is to submit a planning application within the next few months and, provided a consent is granted, to
begin redevelopment of the site later this year.
Your views and comments are important to us and will be used to refine the proposals further.
Thank you for attending this exhibition.
Please review the boards and fill in one of the feedback forms provided. These can be completed now and left in the comments box or
posted to Telephone House, 69 - 77 Paul Street, EC2A 4NW. Alternatively, your comments can be emailed to [email protected]
All email responses will be acknowledged.
For further information and ongoing news on the development, please visit our website at the following address www.orchard-brook.com
This public consultation exercise will take place on Wednesday 6th May 2015, between the hours of 3.00pm and 8.00pm. Members of
the professional team are available to answer any questions you may have.

Potential retirement home
Link to countryside
From the last questionnaire, there was a strong preference for “sheltered housing” or a
“retirement home”. Following an extensive investigation of the market during the last
few months it is clear that a retirement home would be the only viable option in this
location.
Option 2 has been therefore been selected.
From the survey results, most people preferred Option 1 with Public Open Space
located next to the site access (to form the ‘lobby’ into the residential scheme).
Option 2 Public open space could be located at southern section of the site
Option 1 Potential for sheltered housing within the scheme
new links to countryside
Our earlier concept design included
small business units but this was
rejected by Babergh Council
officers on the basis that they do
not consider this to be a viable use
on this site and they have a strong
preference for affordable housing
most of the public open space located to the
southern section of the site
over business units. On that basis
we have had to remove them from
the scheme design.

Option 3 :
Location – north west corner of the site.
Concluded that the building would benefit from direct
pedestrian access to open countryside and across the
Public Open Space to Hall Street, would relate well to
the existing surrounding buildings and would also provide
a high quality frontage to the public footpath and to the
Public Open Space, which will encourage responsible use
of those spaces.

Previous Industrial Use
The design guide Manual for Street (MfS)
supports shared surfaces where traffic is
below 100 vehicle per hour.
Previous Proposal: 51 Dwellings
Different Site Uses
AM
PM
The proposals reduce the number of private/mixed dwellings by 35% compared to the previous 51 dwelling scheme. The retirement flats have only 25%
of the trip generation of standard residential properties and very few trips in the peak periods (0800-09:00 and 17:00 – 18:00). Therefore the overall trip
generation for the proposals is reduced.
