The proposal

Planning Committee DDC has voted to approve the application (with all matters reserved) for a scheme of 5 self-build detached homes in the village of Coldred. The site, of 2. acres is within the un-built confines of the village and its un-described village green conservation area, the self-build plots are to be offered within a custom self-build development ‘into-nature’ rather than ‘onto nature’, and with a density respecting the open setting of the village in Kent.     

PassivHaus Standard

The homes are to be of a high-end design and build, utilising full green energy systems with design and construction to PassivHaus standard. Thus reducing the building’s ecological footprint using rigorous energy-efficient design.

Self-Build Residential Design

The new homes are planned to allow the initial owners of the self-build plots to have primary input into their final design and layout within a design code.

Architect's Design Code

Award-winning Architect HMY of Sevenoaks is progressing the conceptual design for five high-end detached homes. The ‘design brief’ to be achieved within a Group Custom Self-Built project of homes to Passivhaus standard.

Plans for self build plots Kent

Indicative Site Plan

Village Community Design

The site is a designed landscape and a managed environment, which has been out of commercial use since 1972. The maturing tree planting in this level site ensures low visual impact in the wider landscape and privacy in a natural setting not subject to flooding.

Plots are to be offered under a custom self-build scheme, the density respecting the open setting of this attractive village.

Building into Nature

Green Space & Conservation

Following the government’s incentive to create new homes of high design and build in a rural location – the proposed homes will be “build into nature” conserving the sites existing natural character, maintaining the diversity of species and in addition enhance the wildlife with a dedicated shave of reserve along the northwest boundary. The various planted trees will be retained and secure an immediate uninterrupted park-like environment. These homes are set to become the most desired self-build opportunity between Dover and Canterbury.
