Foundry Lea, Bridport

This is a Barratt David Wilson and Countryside Partnerships consortium project that PBD prepared for planning with an extensive design team. Now to be known as Foundry Lea, this is a new sustainable neighbourhood at Vearse Farm, on the western fringe of Bridport. The vision is to deliver 760 homes, a primary school, employment space, local retail and community facilities, as well as extensive accessible open space in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Green space and sustainability are paramount in the masterplan for Foundry Lea, with generous green infrastructure, with a network of pedestrian and cycle links. This project received planning permission in June 2023.
