Woodhall was commissioned to undertake a character appraisal & shopfront assessment for the area and to recommend design policies for inclusion within the emerging Neighbourhood Plan. Woodhall suggested a number of design policies for new residential development within the area that included recommendations on particular brick types and patterns together with eaves details. We also prepared a brief shopfront assessment which included proposals for internal roller shutters, improved fascia design and suggestions for external lighting along with design policies to improve the visual appearance of the shopfronts.
