Westgate, Bridgnorth

A land assembly and partnership development between the Local Authority, West Mercia Police and a Local Housing Association.

A mix of private housing but supporting the wider aspiration of the Local Authority to deal with local need with good quality social housing. The demolition and re-provision of the West Mercia Police Station frees up public sector land to deliver high quality community benefits.

Situated in an established residential suburb in Shropshire, surrounded by 19th and 20th century homes, our proposal works with the existing context of the site whilst creating an entirely new, high quality housing development.

This development will provide a mix of 37 housing types with an abundance of public and private green spaces for residents to enjoy.

The masterplan has been designed to allow permeability across the site and integration of new residents with the existing community.

The properties take architectural and material inspiration from the surrounding area, incorporating sharp pitched roofs and a brick material palette whilst subtle changes to brick types and detailing adds interest and distinction from its context.

The development offers a mix of two, three and four bedroom houses and one and three bedroom apartments.
