Helping make countryside living a reality for locals.

Hailsham, East Sussex

This high volume project set in the East Sussex countryside in Hailsham was realised by V10 for the Clarion Housing Group. The scheme containing 157 homes assisted our client in meeting with their development aspirations in the Home Counties.

The large scale housing-led scheme will deliver a mix of homes and apartments consisting of one, two, three, and four bedroom properties across various tenures. The site was formerly fields and a garden nursery and has wonderful aspects over open countryside.

This exciting project was procured for our client RP who elected to incorporate an over provision of shared ownership dwellings within the scheme mix. This would allow a diverse range of people in the area to take a step forward on the property ladder.

The proposed development has a distinctive country feel with the local vernacular reflected in the design of property facades. These incorporate rustic design features throughout, using natural materials. The scheme contains a large expanse of open space incorporating swales and ponds and retains many well-established trees and hedgerows to sustain a rural feel.

V10 deployed its expertise to design a market-led scheme for Clarion while de-risking some complex technical issues associated with the site. Both John Stainton and Karl Timberlake were instrumental in bringing this project to fruition. The land was sourced by V10’s sister company Terra Firma Land.
