Old Malling Farm
LEWES - PRE PLANNING
BBUK are working with AHMM and the Modular housing company TopHat on Old Malling Farm, a landscape-led and place-based development located outside Lewes within the South Downs National Park.
The greenfield site sits on the edge of the existing urban area and will feature a well-designed sustainable neighbourhood which encourages walking and cycling. The development is spread over 10 hectares and features substantial areas of highly attractive public open space that aim to enhance biodiversity, encourage health and well-being and also to contribute successfully to the landscape quality of the area.
Modular housing produces 82% less embodied carbon than a traditional home and is designed to be energy efficient and zero carbon in use. The scheme will offer 50% affordable housing.
