Coal Orchard - urban regeneration

We are an integrated practice of masterplanners, urban designers, landscape architects and product designers. Experienced in large scale, mixed use and residential masterplanning, health, education, regeneration, housing, parks, public realm and streetscape design.

Lavigne Lonsdale is an award-winning multi-disciplinary design practice with studios in Truro (Cornwall) and Bath. We work throughout the UK and abroad and have particular project experience in the South West of England. We are a diverse and capable team made up of Master Planners, Urban Designers, Architects, Landscape Architects & Planners.

Our experience includes:

Town centre visions: We have prepared “vision” studies on behalf of public sector clients for Barnstaple, Truro, Falmouth and Penzance in addition to working with the Princes Foundation for Building Communities in Wirksworth, Newmarket, Torbay and West Winch/ Kings Lynn. These studies include socio-economic, transport, historic and spatial analysis to understand how places work and how they can be improved through contextual interventions.

Town centre regeneration: Following on from the wider town centre visions, our team is delivering a number of regeneration projects in sensitive locations including Coal Orchard in Taunton, Spring Gardens in Tewksbury, Backlands in Penzance. These are public sector led mixed use schemes aiming to increase day and night-time footfall in our town centres.

Large scale urban extensions: We have 20 years of experience of delivering large scale urban extensions for residential and mixed-use masterplans. These have included Sherford New Town,  Plymouth (5500 homes), Chichester (Whitehouse Farm 1,600 houses), Truro (Maidengreen 650 houses, 100,000 sq ft retail/employment space), Basingstoke (Manydown 8,000 homes), Hayle (1,500 homes), Launceston (900 homes), Torquay, Edginswell (650 homes). 

Small/medium scale development planning :  We work with a number of smaller, local developers to deliver housing schemes for 1 unit to 350+ homes, particularly on sensitive sites where our integrated landscape planning and architecture team can design robust, contextual and exemplar schemes.
