The site at Chantry Quarry was a derelict chalk quarry, close to the centre of Guildford, but was more recently designated as a Development Site within the Local Plan. Illman Young worked closely with the design team to gain planning approval for this exclusive development, where previous applications had failed.
Illman Young engaged to carry out LVIA for site, and evolve a series of development constraints to minimise impact from surrounding key viewpoints
Developing architectural scheme tested against criteria to ensure natural composure of the buildings within the woodland setting
Replanting strategy developed aimed at promoting biodiversity and minimising impact of development
Following detailed planning application, developed full working drawings for external areas to include roof terraces, raised boardwalks to quarry face and high quality paving to external circulation areas.
