Building homes, communities and futures since 1987

Case Study: Dale Road, Southampton

In 2006, Highwood took the opportunity to acquire land close to Southampton General Hospital for an innovative land assembly scheme that saw us construct 70 new build homes and apartments, including provision for affordable housing for local families.

The project to build 56 apartments and 14 houses, including 16 three and four-bedroom affordable homes, was not without its challenges. We had to remain sensitive to the existing ecological habitats and the potential flood issues that came with such a challenging topography and land assembly scheme. We worked hard to retain and enhance the ecological habitats using pioneering retaining structures that enabled us to deliver Highwood’s high standards of design and finish, whilst maximising the land use.

21 units were marketed and sold primarily to investors to rent to staff based at Southampton General and our affordable housing element of the scheme was handed over to Raglan Housing Association in 2006.
