Bluebell Green, London Road, Holmes Chapel

Aptus Utilities was awarded with a street lighting design sited at the Bluebell Green Development in Holmes Chapel in the Cheshire East County Council area.

Bluebell Green features a  collection of 2,3,4 & 5 bedroom homes, set amid untouched countryside within an easy commute of junction 17 and 18 of the M6 motorway, as well as being close to a selection of excellent schools and good local amenities.

At the beginning of the project, it was made clear that the proximity to the countryside created a few factors which needed to be considered from a lighting design perspective.

The existing lighting on site from phase one needed to be incorporated within phase 2 to be certain that the connecting phases where meeting the standards that where expected. Phase one had already been installed by the Aptus Street lighting Installation team, so we were able to obtain the current lighting information. By using the Phase 1 drawing, the Aptus design team was able to make sure the connecting phases were not over or under lit on site.

There were a number of hedgerows and ponds on and around the new proposed site giving an indication that wildlife, such as bats were present. This was clarified by the client and extra precaution was taken when designing within this site. When there is a sighting or record of bats in the area, the lighting must meet the ILP Guidance note 08/18 and be designed according to the specification.

    Bespoke plans

    The lighting design also required a number of contour lines to show where the light spills on to the site and that it does not touch any hedgerows or trees that could cause disturbance to the bats flying paths or roosting areas.
