The devil is always in the detail. This scheme of 30 affordable dwellings by Longhurst Group at Newborough was the subject of a detailed application. Peterborough City Council are the local highway authority, and their exacting highway requirements, in the absence of a design guide, led to multiple alterations of the housing layout as we adjusted footways, carriageway widths, car parking numbers and locations, road types, refuse vehicle tracking, and bin storage. The scheme is finally over the line and approved at committee. Layout by Saunders Boston Architects.
