Residential Development, Clacton

CMS Architects have been working for this South East based developer for several years, undertaking site appraisals and feasibility studies for various mixed-use and residential schemes across the region. 

This project looked to develop a low-grade green field site adjoining the settlement boundary to provide much needed housing for the locality through a mix of self-build units, open market, and affordable dwellings. 

CMS Architects were appointed for RIBA Stages 0-3 culminating in the submission of a comprehensive full planning application for 220 units within the 42-acre site, incorporating extensive landscaping, swales, woodland walks, and public links to the wider area.  

A collaborated approach was required and promoted throughout the design stage to deliver a landscape-led proposal which would maintain and enhance the biodiversity present on the site. The project is currently awaiting planning approval.
