Bumpers Lane, New Housing Development, Former Quarry, Portland, Dorset

Share to social media

Project Description

A quality residential development including a mix of market and affordable housing with a central public open space in Easton, Portland.

Following a lengthy planning process, WDA obtained a full detailed planning permission in 2017 for a new housing development of 71 two and three storey family homes for an existing client. The land is a former quarry site and by working with the contours of the site, many of the new build houses will have magnificent sea views. 

 

The adjoining land is a local Site of Nature Conservation Interest (SNCI) and the application included the formation of mineral and nature conservation buffers with dense landscaped planting around the site to enhance the bio diversity of the surrounding land.  An attractive landscaped public open space is located centrally within the development with mature planting throughout.  Public footpaths are provided throughout the site, linking to the South West Coast Path offering routes down to Portland Bill Lighthouse.

 

Portland Stone will be used extensively throughout the architecture of the development, reflecting not only the character of nearby house design on Wakeham but is also the stone that was once quarried on the site.
