Location: North Devon

The masterplan for a steeply sloping site on the edge of Bideford informed an outline planning application for the demolition of a derelict building; the erection of up to 180 homes, an extension to a care facility, along with associated multi-use open space, public open space (including trim trail and natural play).


The key challenges on this site were to create a liveable, connected development on a steeply sloping Devon site. The street network and open spaces are sympathetic to the ecological features of the site including a wooded stream which runs through the centre of the development.
