Durrants Village, Faygate

Allen Pyke Associates are currently acting on behalf of Urban Renaissance Villages in overseeing the standard of landscape works at the new Retirement Village in Faygate. The development comprises high quality 2 & 3 Bedroom Cottages and 2 Bedroom Apartments set in 30 acres of landscaped grounds exclusively for the over 55s. The layout also includes a Care home and Clubhouse with central amenity lawns and informal meadow and woodland walks adjacent to the existing countryside.

Originally appointed in 2009, Allen Pyke developed the landscape proposals from the initial concept design through the planning stages to construction and continued implementation on site.

Early extensive consultation with the ecologist and engineers and a full understanding of the objectives of the private and communal open space areas has ensured that the scheme meets the unique brief set by the Retirement Village.

Regular site visits and inspections and co-ordination with the landscape contractor and engineer has ensured that planting implemented is in accordance with the landscape specification and will provide initial sales value and long term visual and amenity value for new residents.
