Swan Housing Group
This scheme comprises of thirty nine dwellings to be built in three phases of a rolling programme of construction and demolition. The programme is devised so none of the residents who are being re-housed need to move off site. The scheme provided for a number of elderly residents bungalows which were designed to anticipate future needs of declining mobility. The remainder of the scheme incorporates one to two bedroom apartments and three to four bedroom houses. A small children's play space is incorporated onto the centre of the site. The road system is designed to prioritise pedestrians and reduce vehicle speeds. Footpath links are incorporated to enable residents to access surrounding amenities. The village of Leaden Roding has a number of old traditional Essex buildings and the scheme is designed to blend in with the Essex vernacular reflecting traditional materials, details and proportions.
