Devonshire Place

Grays, Essex

The new development at Devonshire Place will provide much needed new homes for Grays, Essex.

Grays is a town with great potential, close to scenic country parks and the River Thames, yet within convenient commuting distance of London.

The proposals include 102 new homes, a mix of 2,3 and 4 bedroom houses and 1 and 2 bed flats, some of which are affordable. The development will transform the site that sits within a former quarrying and industrial area of the town.

The layout is based on a traditional network of streets and courtyards, with the taller 4 storey apartment blocks at the junction of Devonshire Road and London Road. Larger detached 4 bed homes back onto the existing houses along Moore Avenue. The townscape will be functional, safe and attractive with increased permeability for pedestrians and cyclists.

We worked closely with the Bellway team to turn around the planning application in just 2 months.
