Meppershall, Bedfordshire

Inland Homes



Preparation of a Detailed Planning Application

Vision Statement, before preparing OPA

This site lies at the settlement edge of a small village in Bedfordshire and required a sensitive approach and careful consultation with the local residents and their parish council.


The design is based around a linear park which leads one from the northern entrance to the southern park and open countryside beyond. The houses are designed to be appropriate for their setting and are predominantly of gault brick under slate roofs with paired down detailing, as is characteristic of this area. By contrast the landscape is richly detailed and provides the perfect backdrop. The roads are mostly shared surface with textured strips at junctions to encourage slow speeds.


The revit modelled house designs were useful for the CGI designer,  who was able to import the files directly into his software, saving a great deal of time and ensuring 100% accuracy.
