McCloud’s HAB wins planning for high-end Pardey homes

  • Comment

Kevin McCloud’s HAB Housing has won planning for a five-home development in Oxford designed by John Pardey Architects

The developer, headed by the Grand Designs TV presenter, has previously focused on low-cost, sustainable homes such as its first development, an affordable 42-home scheme in Swindon by Glenn Howells Architects.

The Pardey scheme, which is ten minutes from Oxford’s city centre, includes five individually designed houses which take advantage of their own unique position on a hill.

Purchasers can customise the internal layout of their homes ‘to suit their own needs and tastes’ with HAB offering both a ‘conventional arrangement’ with living space on the ground floor or an ‘upside-down’ plan, with daytime living space positioned on the first floor

Options for the homes include winter gardens and outdoor kitchens.

The landscape is being designed by Robert Bray Associates and will include water gardens and sustainable urban drainage.

Speaking about being granted planning permission HAB’s Communications and Sales Director Simon McWhirter said: ‘This is fantastic news. Cumnor Hill is a beautiful setting minutes from Oxford City Centre and with the Cotswolds on its doorstep. John Pardey Architects and Robert Bray Associates have combined with us to craft a really cracking scheme.

‘We can’t wait to get started and would love to hear from anyone who’s interested in settling in the area.’

Work is expected to start on site in the early autumn.
