July 2015 - CMYK are delighted to announce that Reserved Matters Approval has been granted for 198 dwellings on the first phase of the Sherford New Town Development in Plymouth on behalf of Taylor Wimpey – Exeter.
This approval forms part of the first phase of the overall development that will consist of approximately 5500 homes, together with new schools, sports centres, Public Open Space, shops, offices and other community facilities. All house types are of a bespoke design, created specifically for this development and reflect the character of the Local vernacular. We worked closely with our client, the Local Authority and the Princes Foundation to create unique designs that will establish a real sense of place. A series of documents and Codes have been compiled during the Master Planning stage and these set out many of the elements that the detailed schemes should include. We studied these documents in detail, ensuring compliance of all applicable sections and also produced an extensive ‘Code Response Document’ demonstrating how our scheme was suitable.
As the overall project is a Consortium project with other developers, we took a proactive role in co-ordinating matters between all parties and also worked closely with the Local Authority to ensure a Planning Approval at the first attempt.
CMYK are now preparing Master Plans for the remainder of Phase 1 on behalf of the Consortium and look forward to seeing the development commence in the new year.
