Cavanna Homes appointed Liz Lake Associates to prepare an outline planning application for development on land west off New Launceston Road, Tavistock. This parcel of land lies on the edge of Tavistock town centre, comprising three fields and contains an existing waterbody. The site was identified within the draft Local Plan for new development.
Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, Liz Lake Associates produced the relevant documentation necessary for the submission of an outline planning application for 148 houses on the site. After initial desk based research and liaison with the local Planning Officer, a site visit allowed us to fully comprehend the site’s setting within the adjoining residential neighbourhood and wider landscape. We then produced a Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA), a landscape masterplan and outline planting plans for the site, working in close collaboration with the design team.
