We are delighted to be working with our long-standing client, Woodchurch Homes on an exciting new proposed rural development in Bridge. On the site of a redundant former farm, our scheme is for a small-scale residential housing development and aims to draw on the agricultural building typologies by creating a farmstead-style design.

Design Concept

Our proposed scheme is for 13 dwellings comprising a mixture of 3, 4 and 5-bedroom units, including two affordable units and one First Home.

Our design centres around recreating the appearance of barn structures and Kent farmsteads and great care has been taken to incorporate an original existing brick wall into the scheme, maintaining the original history of the site.

Site context and local support

The site is located in a protected Conservation Area and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) which adds another layer of accountability and challenge to any proposed development, however, the Kent Downs AONB has been supportive of the scheme, praising the sensitive design and welcoming the opportunity to enhance the immediate surroundings.

The site also sits adjacent to a Grade II listed farmhouse, but the planners are in agreement that the proposed development would benefit the historic setting.

Many local residents have also voiced their support for the scheme, which would provide new homes and deliver ecological enhancements to the site.
