Sherford is a new community being developed in Plymouth, Devon. Located on the eastern outskirts of Plymouth, the Sherford site occupies over 1,200 acres of farmland between the A38 and A379. Wardell Armstrong were commissioned by The Sherford Consortium (via Brookbanks Consulting) to carry out detailed assessment of the site.
The main element of Wardell Armstrong’s scope was to close out complex planning conditions relating to ground conditions at the proposed development. It was understood that the Sherford development would be a mixed-use scheme comprising a mixture of private and affordable housing, new schools, a health centre, a sports centre, a youth centre, recreational areas, and associated infrastructure.
