RRA was approached by a housing developer to look to a large part of the town of Bromyard to develop a housing development with a careful conservation repair program to 3 historic buildings located on the site.

The scheme whilst traditional and conservative in its aesthetic is a success in terms of negotiating a sympathetic material palette and existing street scape within Bromyard. English Heritage celebrated this project as it maintained important views from the city towards Bromyard Downs.

The end result is a project that was fully let and sold within weeks of completion.

RRA Architects ensured that the complexity of onsite work was managed on behalf of our client to carefully discharge planning conditions. Site complexity consisted of the onsite and technical constraints of a city sewer main and archaeology of ancient burial ground.
