Darrick Wood Estate
Plans submitted after lengthy consultation
16 March 2022
Plans for Darrick Wood Estate have been submitted after four years working with the Housing Association and local residents.
The proposal is for the development of an existing suburban housing estate approximately 8.7ha in size situated to the south of Orpington, Bromley. Darrick Wood Estate was built in the mid- 1980s and is characterised by its Radburn style planning, with housing arranged around large landscaped lawns, terraces and planting. The site is made up of 369 existing dwellings within an area consisting mainly of low to mid density housing.
Through lengthy consultation with the planning authority and the local residents, our proposal looks to bring forward a development of 26 affordable homes. The design has been carefully considered to respond to the immediate context, introducing a new landscaped public ‘street’ and a semi private courtyard for the residents.
