    Whitehill Chase shortlisted for Housing Design Awards

    We are delighted that our scheme at Whitehill Chase, Bordon has been granted planning permission, and shortlisted for a Housing Design Award! A high-quality sustainable development close to the new town centre and local SANG, our proposals will see the delivery of 50 homes within previously private woodland now accessible to the wider community.

    Natural woodland wraps around the site, safeguarding and reinforcing existing habitats. To the centre of the site homes are orientated to maximise views over green spaces and woodland, creating connectivity with the landscape. View corridors and vistas between existing ‘anchor’ trees define key routes within the site.

    FutureBuild2023- Take a Stand

    The GSA retrofit team attended the annual FutureBuild conference this week, which urges professionals to ‘take a stand for a better built environment’. The event featured over 90 industry leading partners and featured a stellar line-up of over 300 speakers, giving insights on net zero, the scale and pace of retrofit and sustainable infrastructure.

    Interest in Retrofit is growing rapidly, particularly evident by the growing number of large, high-quality projects underway in the UK, like the ones GSA are currently involved in across London. Retrofit offers a solution to some of the UK’s most vulnerable households when facing the demands of extreme climate change and energy insecurity.

  • Outline Approval for Grange Farm

    Outline Approval for Grange Farm

    The new year has started well with a planning approval in Leicestershire for our client HLM (Harris Land Management). Blaby District Council resolved to grant outline planning approval for up to 58 new homes on this 6 acre site in Leicester Forest East , known as Grange Farm.

    Trees have been retained where possible - including some with TPOs - and create a focal point within the open space, visual screening as well as noise attenuation from then nearby M1. Homes are arranged in a network of streets, leafy lanes and courtyards, with many homes benefitting from a green outlook.
