Contemporary Architecture Residential Alfold Gardens Architects Journal

John Pardey Architects have submitted planning for 56 homes in Alfold, Surrey. Inspired by the local rural vernacular, the scheme for Q-Developments has been designed around a village green ’framed by a network of lanes and paths’. 

A previous application to Waverley Borough Council for 27 homes on the the southern part of the plot was refused by the planning committee and the latest plans have been met with opposition from local residents and the parish council, which claims the development is too large and intensive.

However, reviewers from design support network Design South East praised the proposal, saying it had ’many attributes that could make it an exemplary housing scheme’, adding: We are supportive of the structure and the layout of the streets and blocks and the way that the development picks up key walking and desire lines in an attempt to knit this development into the fabric of Alfold village.’
