"We have worked with AWP on a number of projects. We particularly like the technical expertise they bring to our project teams and the proactive attitude that all of their guys seem to possess."
Yelland Quay is located on the north coast of Devon overlooking the Taw Estuary. The 55ha brownfield site includes ground occupied by the former Yelland Power Station and currently provides a range of local employment uses.
The proposed mixed use redevelopment scheme includes up to 280 dwellings, a spa hotel, restaurant, cafes, doctors surgery, dentist, community shop and local retail shops. An integral part of the proposal is the retention of the operational jetty. Improved access to and over the Tarka trail are also proposed.
Working closely with project masterplanners Woodward Smith, we were appointed to undertake a Flood Risk Assessment and a Transport Assessment in support of an Outline Planning Application. A key part of the FRA was the assessment of the likely wave impact on this exposed coastal location. We appointed specialist coastal engineers JBA as sub-consultants to address this issue to satisfy the EA and to inform the developing masterplan. A public consultation event was held to outline the proposed scheme to the District Council Officers, Members and local residents.
An outline planning application was submitted to North Devon Council in 2018.
