Former airforce site transformed into sustainable community
Locking Parklands is a new, sustainable community set on a former Royal Air Force site in North Somerset. The site is a mature parkland landscape and the phased development takes full advantage of this fantastic setting. This is a whole community, so it includes offices and other commercial uses as well as a range of different house types.
The houses are all designed to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 and the offices have achieved BREEAM “Excellent”. The architecture is restrained but highly contemporary to enhance this unique setting.
St Modwen, our client, has experienced brisk sales, with many houses and apartments being sold off-plan. Full of character, each phase of the development boasts an individual identity influenced by setting and function.
