Wenford Dries Condition Discharge
CEC were commissioned in April 2015 to work on the discharge of planning conditions for the Wenford Dries project, which is a series of conjoined buildings (some grade II listed) built in the early 20th century for China Clay production. The buildings are terraced into a west facing slope in the valley formed by the River Camel. To the east of the buildings is a levelled terrace which originally supported the railway tracks used to transport the finished clay from the dries. The original railway tracks will be a path using railway sleepers accessing the buildings balconies.
CEC worked with ecologists and bat ecologists to arrive at proposals benefiting the wildlife and biodiversity by including a reed bed pond, wildflower meadows, native and flowering trees whilst aesthetically creating a beautiful communal garden. Existing trees are incorporated into the new scheme, whilst proposed planting is consistent with the scale and range of species found in the surrounding countryside and hedgerows. An implementation plan has been produced to discharge planning conditions.
