Southport Road, Scarisbrick


One Vision Housing and MBE Construction

Project cost




Project Description

BTP were architects on a scheme to bring 40 modern, much needed affordable homes to Southport Road in Scarisbrick.Working with client, One Vision Housing, our design fits in with surrounding buildings.

As planning policy did not support the development of this site as it was in a small rural village, we worked really closely with planners to meet their requirements. The result is we have designed a scheme that ensures provision of plenty of green space, including a courtyard, and is in keeping with the rural surrounds.

We took a thoughtful approach to the design of each individual home to ensure these will be a joy for older residents to move into; for example by making sure furniture will easily fit in.  The scheme has recently been handed over to the client and feedback is extremely positive.
