RNIB Redhill - Setting New Standards for Supported Living
A pioneering residential scheme of 102 new homes in Redhill, Surrey, which will integrate community housing for blind and partially sighted people with homes for private sale, has been granted planning consent. This joint venture between Countryside and the RNIB is the first of its kind in the UK.
The development includes a wide range of community facilities within ‘The Hub’ and a sensory garden, which was a Gold Award winner at the Chelsea Flower Show. High quality placemaking, legible design and landscaping replace traditional wayfinding tools such as handrails.
