Sensitive mixed-tenure residential
Langton Road, Blandford
Westbury Homes had acquired a valuable site next to the new bypass in Blandford. They came to SRA with initial designs, looking for help to secure planning permission and maximise the value of the development.
First we secured planning consent. We took the designs and adapted them to the local vernacular style, with a careful choice of traditional materials and building techniques. The variety of complementary styles helped the development fit beautifully into its landscape.
We then carefully configured the plots to provide 107 units of both private and housing association property. Maintaining a sense of privacy and space for each was key to the site’s marketability. The new homes have a cosy village feel which is attractive to buyers. The road layout promotes safety and security for the development’s youngest and oldest residents.
