Grafton Gate Roade
- Project Name: Housing Development, Roade
- Main Contractor: Taylor Wimpey
- Project Value: £110,000
Taylor Wimpey plc (formerly Taylor Woodrow plc) is one of the largest British based house building companies. Grafton Gate Roade was classified as ‘white land’ within the local plan, meaning it had no specific proposal for allocation, the intention being for the existing use to remain unchanged. However, after a successful planning appeal the site was identified residential development.
With site being located close to the mainline railway Taylor Wimpey employed The Wilde Group to design, supply and install a 3m -5m high reflective and absorbent timber acoustic fence between to housing development and the railway boundaries.
