Finalists for Peak Park project

Our sympathetically designed scheme in Bakewell, Derbyshire has been announced as a finalist in the Midlands Residential Property Awards 2022.

Colonel Wright Close, a rural scheme of 30 homes, has been shortlisted in the ‘Best Small Residential Development of the Year (less than 100 units)’ category.

The new homes sit on land formerly part of Lady Manners School, in the heart of Peak District National Park. The project was over ten years in the making. It had to overcome many site constraints, but the resulting scheme blends peacefully into its surroundings, with use of local stone in the buildings’ construction and natural dry stone walls.

For client Platform Housing, Pelham acted as the architects, employer’s agent, clerk of works and worked with the client as development partners.

The main contractor for the development was Lindum Construction.

The award ceremony will take place on 23 June – watch this space!
