Hoe Valley Residential Housing, Woking
The £44 million scheme, delivered on behalf of Woking Borough Council and its partner in the flood defence work, the Environment Agency, has significantly reduced the flood risk in the area, provided state-of-the-art community facilities and extensive public open space and new wildlife habitats. The Hoe Valley Scheme is the realisation of a 20 year vision by the Council to regenerate the Hoe Valley and significantly reduce the risk of flooding that has blighted the area for years. Under budget and on time, the scheme has transformed and revitalised an area of the Borough that was once a domestic waste site, into an area for people to enjoy for generations to come.
Over 12 acres of contaminated land from the former Westfield Tip site was remediated and formed into a new park and a housing development of over 150 new homes.
HED was responsible for the delivery of the new public landscape around the residential housing and the country park which was designed to promote mixed ecology and encourage wildlife bio-diversity, featuring two new play parks, footpaths and cycle-ways to increase accessibility to all areas of the park.
