Building homes, communities and futures since 1987

Case Study: Stricklands, The Deanery, Southampton

Highwood Group constructed a small, affordable housing scheme of just three apartments and one house on land we acquired from a private owner.

The site formed part of a larger site that had a historic past and lies southwest of the nationally important mid-Saxon settlement of Hamwic. The sensitive nature of the location involved a watching brief over the site’s archaeological interest and a dig as evidence of the remains of construction dating back to c.1600 were found.

Further hurdles were faced with the necessity for a flood risk mitigation scheme that meant Highwood was forced to raise the level of the main road by 50mm in addition to the planned and very extensive highway works.

However, the project was completed successfully and was handed over to Testway Housing Group who ensured all dwellings were fully occupied by residents in need of affordable housing in the city.
