Graylingwell Park is a multi-award winning development delivered through a joint venture with Linden Homes.
The development has transformed a derelict former hospital site to provide 792 mixed tenure new build and refurbished homes to meet the needs of a range of family sizes and income levels. The scheme also benefits from new community facilities, sports facilities, a shop, restaurant, artist studios and commercial units.
One of the country’s largest net zero carbon developments under construction, an energy centre is located within the development’s landmark water tower and there is a combined heat and power plant. This will provide heating and water to all the homes through gas fed low carbon technology. Homes also benefit from photovoltaics, heat recovery systems and sustainable drainage systems.
The Graylingwell Park site was acquired and is being developed by the Graylingwell LLP. The partners invested equal equity in the venture with bank debt supplied by a retail bank.
