Branston, Lincolnshire, UK

ADAS Land is promoting a 76 acre site in Branston, Lincolnshire. The large village has the potential to allocate and deliver a new sustainable settlement. The potential site allocation would take advantage of the excellent local community services and transport links provided by the B1188, the A46 and the A52 linking Lincoln, Newark-on-Trent, Grantham and Nottingham.

The development site is 32 ha of arable farmland, and the proposed development will consist of around 600 dwellings at an average of 35 dwellings per hectare (excluding green infrastructure) comprising both general-needs and specialist housing. We will be introducing a range of house types with lower ecological footprints and low-carbon living to support North Kesteven’s vision of a zero-carbon district. ADAS Land will improve highways and public pathways and will secure public transport through development contributions. A mix of formal and informal open spaces, including a large green corridor, throughout the development area will add to its environmental and social benefits.

ADAS Land is committed to delivering a high-quality and sustainable design. A practical approach will take into consideration the design and evolution of the master plan. The design focuses on reducing the requirement for private transport journeys and encouraging self-sufficiency so that residents can take advantage of the development’s features and homeworking. The site will deliver low-carbon homes, sustainable urban drainage systems, water treatment systems, rainwater harvesting, pedestrian and cycle routes, vehicle charging points and public open space/green networks to provide residents with a safe, secure and sustainable community.
