Charters Towers

Allen Pyke was first commissioned to prepare an LVIA and landscape strategy for a proposed Retirement Village and Care Home, located within the Green Belt at Charters Tower, near East Grinstead.

The proposal focuses around an existing Victorian Manor house set against a backdrop of grassland and a framework of existing specimen trees and mature boundary vegetation. The landscape strategy seeks to sensitively integrate the scheme within the existing parkland setting and to create a series of intimate private and public spaces, styled to reflect the Arts and Crafts character of the manor house.

Following planning success, Allen Pyke prepared detailed landscape proposals to include the evolution of courtyard spaces and hard landscape and planting plans for the entire site.
