Chimney Pot Park is an innovative response to the regeneration of an area of existing terrace housing previously earmarked for demolition. The result is an interesting concept for the reuse of existing housing stock. Original street patterns have remained largely intact, thus retaining high-density occupancy in a low-rise scheme.
The original red-brick street elevations of the two-up two-down terrace houses have been restored with great care and the old back yards converted into street-level secure car parking with a communal roof garden above - albeit at the cost of loss of some light in the ground-floor bedrooms. Residents can park in secure off-street parking and access their houses via the roof garden.
