Somerset Road

Returning the urban grain of an area to its predominant residential scale and pattern.

The site at Somerset Road offers a great opportunity to return the urban grain of this area to its predominant residential scale and pattern. By proposing residential development there is the possibility to complete and enhance existing street scenes.

The scheme proposes a total of 58 units, 24 houses and 34 flats replacing offices and workshops in an established residential area close to the town centre. An uncomplicated contemporary design with the scale of the buildings considered to fit into a gridiron street pattern with mainly 2-storey terrace houses, 26 of these dwellings would be classed as affordable homes.
