The Client owned land to the rear of former workers cottages for many years. Snell David were approached to produce an outline application for 8 residential dwellings. 

The vision was to produce a high quality development which met local needs with variety of character, a strong identity and of contemporary vernacular appearance. The site was an enclosed back fill plot with no street frontage and a single point of entry.

Our approach was to draw on rural farmhouse precedents with barns, sheds and stables grouped around a central courtyard. Details of a new access road were agreed with the highways department and incorporated into the proposals for the 8no. 2-4 bedroom houses including 2 affordable dwellings, terraced, semidetached and detached from 1.5-2.5 storeys.

The project obtained planning approval in December 2012.
