HLM worked in collaboration with the masterplanning team at Carter Jonas to create a new rural settlement of 600 homes in West Sussex. HLM led the planning application for Phase 01, delivering 108 homes in a prominent location between the site entrance and the new local center. The team is taking a sensitive landscape-led approach to design, incorporating principles of MMC methodologies and sustainable design standards, including RIBA 2030 Sustainable Outcomes, from the overall masterplan to the design of individual house types. This will ensure that the new homes are built with minimal disruption and have a limited impact on the natural environment. The proposed development seeks to integrate the existing and historic agricultural use of the site with the rural village character of the surrounding area through a contemporary architectural language.
