On Monday 23rd April, AFA Associate Joy Stone co-hosted the RTPI South West Young Planners Wapping Wharf site visit with Muse Developments, (one half of the Joint Venture Group alongside the Landowners Umberslade). The event gave AFA the opportunity to present the Insider & Michelmore’s multi-award winning site (Phase 1) and to talk about the vision behind the project and site wide masterplan. This was then followed by a tour of the site which gave the SW Young Planners an understanding of the site constraints and opportunities and the process that was undertaken to transform this area into a desirable residential community and retail destination. Recently it was announced that Balfour Beatty will construct the second phase of Wapping Wharf, adding a further 256 homes with potential for 4 additional retail units. The main focal point of the development will be the Grade II listed Gaol Gate which will serve as the main entry point to the residential blocks.
