ArchitecturePLB has recently secured planning permission for the Regeneration of Monksbrook Estate in Eastleigh, Southampton. The scheme is to replace an estate of 164 outmoded houses with 238 mixed tenure new homes to CfSH Code Level 4. The masterplan places great importance on the public realm, which is critical in creating ‘sense of place’ and fostering community. As the result of a careful pre-application consultation, permission was processed quickly in just 8 weeks, with a unanimous vote of approval from the committee.
