Chairman, The Shoreham Society[Back to list]
The Shoreham Society Chairman, Deputy Chair and key members of the development committee appreciate having been invited to comment on early design ideas for this project, with its potentially positive impact on Shoreham and its residents.
We feel that Society members would be enthusiastic about the ecologically evolved design principles of the project including the ‘eco-village’ feeling and sustainable energy solutions such as solar panels, geothermic heat sourcing, electric- ity from wind and provision for electric vehicles, as well as inclusion of grass roofs to moderate visual impact and add biodiversity.
We judge that the membership would welcome development of this long-standing brown field site, assuming that the final designs are within acceptable standards of scale of development and impact on local infrastructure. We look for- ward to supporting the project, and co-operating in further consultation as the project develops towards more detailed design.
