Land to the East of Shaftesbury.
This development of 530 dwellings is located on the eastern edge of Shaftesbury, directly north of Salisbury Road. A masterplan and design code provided detailed design guidance for development which included public open space, play space, SuDS, two shops and a special protection area for badgers.
The proposals integrate with the eastern edge of Shaftesbury, whilst creating an environment which respects the local development patterns and building vernacular. The opportunity to create views of the landscape features from high points within the site was realised through view corridors along principal streets. Although the built form is designed to reflect the local vernacular (including the use of local Greensand Stone), a proportion of dwellings were designed in a more contemporary style.
