ST MARY’S BAY, KENT

A residential development of 72no. 2-4 bed units, located on a former caravan site a short distance from the English Channel coast line and overlooking the Romney Marsh.

markhantonStudio provided design and technical support for RIBA Stages A-D for a detailed planning application. Our role looked at the whole of the external works, and included road classification and character types based on the Kent Design Guide. This insured a development based on liveable streets, safe for pedestrians, and with a clear hierarchy and therefore legibility for the estate.
The overall hard and soft landscaping was designed to reflect the local rural character and marsh setting; it incorporates indigenous maritime planting mixes, local vernacular materials, and natural sustainable urban drainage solutions to a flood susceptible area. 

Planning approval was successful obtained in February 2011. Phase 1 commenced in 2015.
