100 homes on the BRE site for Crest Nicholson100 homes on the BRE site for Crest Nicholson
Full planning permission has been granted, subject to planning agreements, for up to 100 residential dwellings on part of the former BRE campus in Bricket Wood, Hertfordshire, for Crest Nicholson.
The development is a mix of terraced houses, linear courtyard houses and apartment blocks set within a series of public green spaces and private gardens, conceived as an extension to the existing natural woodland beyond. Designed as a flexible and adaptable arrangement of homes, a minimum of 35% of the homes will be affordable.
The continued operation and maintenance of a listed 1941 replica of The Mohne Dam, is included within the planning agreement.
Jason Cornish, Partner at FCBStudios said “The development in Bricket Wood has been designed to be an exemplary housing development reflecting the ethos of the BRE and drawing on FCBStudios experience of creating sustainable residential developments that provide the spaces to build communities.”
