South Petherton, Somerset

The parish council of this market town approached Novell Tullett and Colin Buchanan jointly to draw up a strategy to improve the quality of its historic urban realm.  We undertook a great deal of public consultation to understand how residents used their environment and enjoyed its character.  We also researched the impact of parking and local materials on the street scene.  This highly collaborative approach allowed us to really define the quality of the public spaces and make proposals for enhanced entrances and meeting points to add coherence and quality to the town.
