Whalebone Park is an undeveloped greenfield site. The trustees required Bidwells’ expertise to advise on development proposals that could release funds to the trust and charity, in addition to providing benefits for the local community. The site lies within a conservation area and requires a sensitive approach in delivery.
A consortium led large scale residential development site, in the village of Easton, to deliver up to 890 new residential dwellings with associated community benefits including new village heart to include an extended primary school, new village hall, retail store, public open space and new allotments together with associated highways works.
Bidwells was instructed to obtain planning permission for the redevelopment of the Laindon Centre. The scheme included a new high street with shops, 244 homes, office space, a neighbourhood food store, a modern health centre and a new landscaped public realm enhancing the existing war memorial.
