The site is the former Dyson Refractories ceramics factory on Stopes Road, Stannington and located within Sheffield’s Green Belt.
Working alongside Oasis Studio Architects a scheme of 88 new homes was conceived. Weddles were asked to develop the Public Open Space strategy and detailed designs for the site. Our brief was to deliver a high-quality residential environment, utilising local natural materials.
During the planning application officers said the designs were ‘appropriate to the overall setting’ and that ‘useable and well-designed open space’ would ‘complement’ the houses.
The proposals enhanced the sustainability credentials of the project and ‘weigh positively’ in its favour. The planning application was approved in October 2015.
