Neils View, Maiden Newton, Dorset

Working with Aster Homes and the local Community Land Trust to construct 14 homes for local people in Maiden Newton on a parcel of land donated by a local landowner to commemorate the death of their son.

This greenfield development on the edge of the village presented challenges due to the typography of the site and lack of infrastructure.  A number of retaining structures, a new water authority approved pumping station and rising main along the main highway were successfully implemented within the scheme.

The high quality of material selection including flint, timber cladding and slate roofs provided an excellent match to the surrounding environment and gained approval from the original landowner, residents and the CLT.
