Site reference: HL115 Site name: Former West St Leonards Primary School, Bexhill Road

Focus Area/Strategic Policy: Focus Area 4: West Marina and West St Leonards

Use: Residential

Indicative capacity (net residential dwellings/floorspace): 60

Site specific development considerations based on draft Local Plan policies:

Development on this site should:

  • Provide 25% affordable housing in line with policy SP2
  • Provide all vehicular access from Filsham Road
  • Provide new formal publicly accessible open space within the site suitable for a variety of uses taking into account its location within an area of current and projected deficiencies in access to certain types of open space
  • Achieve high standards of sustainable design and construction
  • Protect and safeguard the adjacent South Saxons Local Wildlife Site to the west and north and avoid or mitigate against any adverse impacts
  • Provide an assessment of potential land contamination and any mitigation measures required. Part of the site was formerly a refuse tip and may still produce landfill gas. There is also a small area of contaminated land in the north-western corner of the site
  • Include pedestrian/cycle links that are proposed to the west and south and routes to improve local connectivity and to preserve the public right of way access to South Saxons SNCI at the north west of the site
  • Include flood protection and mitigation measures given the area of tidal and fluvial flood risk (Zone 3) on the site.
  • Have discharge rates agreed with the Pevensey & Cuckmere Water Level Management Board (PCWLMB) prior to granting of permission. This site also has a high groundwater table and drainage design should be informed by onsite monitoring
  • Maintain a buffer zone on either side of the Hollington Stream. The stream is an important ecological asset and is engineered to avoid unacceptable flood risk, so close working with the Council and the Environment Agency is encouraged and opportunities to create a feature of the stream should be explored
  • Take account of Southern Water's underground infrastructure in the design of the layout of the site. Easements would be required, which may affect the site layout or require diversion, and these should be clear of all proposed buildings and tree planting

Site reference: HL40 Site name: Former Mount Pleasant Hospital, Frederick Road

Focus Area/Strategic Policy: n/a

Use: Residential

Indicative capacity (net residential dwellings/floorspace): 56

Site specific development considerations based on draft Local Plan policies:

Development on this site should:

  • Provide 25 % affordable housing in line with policy SP2
  • Make best use of the existing road entrance and the design of development along the spine road that runs north- east to south-west along the centre of the site. The position of the spine road together with the narrowness of the site suggests that housing development is likely to take the form of frontage development on either side of the road. There may also be alternative approaches that might be acceptable, including more depth of development in the south-eastern part of the site
  • Safeguard land to enable the implementation of the strategic network of cycle routes and contribute to its creation and management as appropriate
  • Protect the large drainage storage tank to the west of the turning head as part of future redevelopment
  • Provide a connection to the sewerage system at the nearest point of adequate capacity and/or make improvements to the infrastructure if necessary, as advised by Southern Water
  • Take account of Southern Water's underground infrastructure in the design of the layout of the site. Easements would be required, which may affect the site layout or require diversion, and these should be clear of all proposed buildings and tree planting
  • Include an updated Management Plan for the identified Ecology Zone, including measures for the management and ongoing maintenance of that area

  • Reserve six plots for association self-build and/or custom housebuilding
  • In all cases retain the woodland area to the north of the site corresponding to approximately 0.85 ha (capacity has been calculated net of this site area)
  • Provide some physical breaks in frontage, with a landscaped area, possibly with a through-route for servicing and emergency access only. Achieving this requires, at least in part, some different housing typologies such as maisonette and/or flatted units to allow more generous plot widths and support four or even five-storey development, corresponding to the scale of development at Priory Road on the opposite hillside, whilst better integrating its sloped woodland setting
  • Provide an assessment of potential contamination and any mitigation measures required
  • Include pedestrian/cycle links to nearby open spaces, amenities, bus routes and Ore Station
  • Consider that this site has a high groundwater table and drainage design should be informed by onsite monitoring
  • Protect and safeguard the adjacent Broomgrove Local Wildlife Site to the south and avoid or mitigate against any adverse impacts.
