The works to the 1.81Ha former railway station and sidings site involved re-engineering of the site to form development platforms for residential development including the break out and crush of historical foundations, hard standings and drainage diversion. The works involved extensive environmental monitoring including mitigation for working around the Grade II listed former station building to the southern site boundary. To minimise fuel costs, emissions and noise to the local community VHE utilised the latest solar technology to power some of the site office establishment.
The site was awarded a Performance Beyond Compliance certificate under the Considerate Constructors Scheme, emulating previous standards having regularly been judged Beyond Compliance on Homes England sites.
