Manningtree

Retail

Success at planning for a standalone neighbourhood foodstore, following previous failed submissions, by others, in this sensitive location – achieved via a character appraisal based design approach and extensive local consultation.

This culminated with a unique, “responsive” design which is supported by Essex Design Review Panel. Demonstration that a consultative approach involving all interest groups can positively influence the evolution of a project, which in turn is supported by the community and the decision makers.
