WDA have been appointed to design four new detached houses on an elevated, sloping site in the coastal town of Lyme Regis, Dorset. Located on the unique Jurassic Coast, the site is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty AONB and on the edge of the Lyme Regis Conservation Area. The project will involve a plot severance from one house to four for a local property developer so the proposals will require a good knowledge of local planning policies and cost-effective design ideas.
The designs will reflect the traditional character to the street frontage and incorporate contemporary designs to the rear. The site layout will maximise distant sea views towards the West Dorset coastline but sensitively consider the amenity of neighbouring properties and the important coastal landscape.
We now look forward to working closely with our client and West Dorset District Council to produce an exciting design proposal that is economical to build whilst providing an innovative and energyefficient design for the future homeowners.”
