Local planning strategy for Freshford & Limpley Stoke

In the context of our membership of the CABE Built Environment Expert Panel, JSA were commissioned to support the villages of Freshford and Limpley Stoke in the production of a neighbourhood plan for submission to and adoption by the North East Somerset local planning authority.

The plan focused on a number of projects to develop a unified public realm identity for both villages and a series of links that would join together two settlements separated by a mile of open countryside.

Through a consultation process JSA identified projects for development and created visualisations that would add design quality to a submission that was otherwise planning-driven. We consulted extensively with residents and developed proposals that could emerge as capital schemes in future phases of the project. These included a branded village entry scheme design, new linking footways, a new war memorial site and a village orchard.

The Freshford and Limpley Stoke Village Plan was adopted by North East Somerset Council in the summer of 2014.
