Travellers Site

This project involved both the upgrading an existing travellers site in Houndsfield Lane, Bromsgrove and providing a series of new units, several of which are Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) compliant.

 

Vehicular circulation was rationalised and the plot sizes reorganised.

The site acts as a permanent base for traveller families who sleep in their caravans but require more permanent living accommodation. The units are essentially bungalows without bedrooms and include a living space, kitchen, and bathroom. The relationship between the caravan and the unit is critical, especially in the DDA compliant units which require ramps to access the higher caravan level. Units were designed to meet site constraints, robustness and our client, the housing association’s budget.
