The facing materials will consist of crisp, off-white render, timber cladding, dark grey engineering brick and aluminium framed windows, with balconies and sun terraces overlooking generous gardens at the rear. Allowances have been made for allotments on the site, as well as a communal woodland garden and composting and recycling facilities. We expect building works to commence in spring 2015…
