Project Description

Lutwyche Road, Church Stretton (PDF)

SSHA obtained land next to an existing car park and public toilet block. Following detailed consultations between local residents, Parish Council and the Local Authority, a scheme was devised to place a visual ‘full-stop’ to the end of Beaumont Road. As a consequence the view from the main high street no longer stood as a toilet block and car park.

The solution of a traditional design, in keeping with adjacent dwellings was taken in conjunction with Local Authority Planners. The project utilised the roof space to provide extra accommodation within the building footprint, and by relocating the public toilet block and creating a new bungalow alongside the main block this scheme made very efficient use of the site.

The project achieved Code for Sustainable Homes level 3.
