Woods Lane, Melton


Ingent worked with Bloor Homes to deliver a 180 dwelling residential development off Woods Lane in Melton, Suffolk. The site utilises permeable pavements and infiltration basins so that surface water discharge mimics the pre-development regime as closely as possible. Connection to the off-site foul water sewer was a particular challenge due to the large number of strategic services that occupy the road space.

The site access works include a Ghost Right Turn Lane, Toucan crossing and upgrades to the existing footways, all delivered under a Section 278 Agreement with the Highway Authority.
