Everything is Somewhere Ltd were appointed by Breedon Aggregates in 2012 to assist and advise on the development of a concrete works site in Telford. In this case an arrangement had been entered into with David Wilson Homes and initial work focused on understanding the complexities of the site and it’s constraints, which included legacy putrescible landfill, former quarry workings, various protected species, areas of woodland and mains services. Using a Geographical Information System (GIS), all “constraints” were mapped and this spatial data was used to help maximise the development of the site.
A planning application was submitted for 460 homes, which was subsequently approved.
Further advice and services were provided in negotiating and concluding a sale to David Wilson Homes.
The picture above shows the site under construction with the first houses now occupied.
