Barn Hill, Chipping Sodbury.
This mixed use masterplan was on a challenging site partly occupied by a disused quarry on the edge of an SSSI in Chipping Sodbury. Thrive worked with a specialist retail developer team and conservation architects to develop the masterplan. The masterplan included a Waitrose food store, a long-stay and short-stay car park, new pedestrian link to and from the High Street, small-scale retail and commercial units, Extra Care facility and 87 new homes.
The proximity of the site to the heart of the town made it highly sustainable and the residential design was developed with a green route that facilitated pedestrian linkages directly to the High Street. Phases 1 to 3 were completed in Autumn 2014. We have also completed the reserved matters application for the residential phases 4 and 5 which have been carefully designed with varied architectural appearance to reflect different character areas. These are due for completion in 2016.
