Thornesgate - Finalist for Planning Excellence Award

Thornesgate, Wakefield

Spawforths are proud that our scheme, developed alongside Bridge Homes has been recognised as a Finalist in the RTPI Planning Excellence Awards 2022. It is great to see our scheme sitting among such a strong group of Finalists and we cannot wait for the Awards Event in June.

Thornesgate in Wakefield provides 96 high-quality new homes which supports and encourages the community to come together.  Spawforths worked alongside Bridge Homes to develop an approach to place-making which delivered a scheme well suited to character of the local area.

Spawforths planning and urban design helped Bridge Homes to physically manifest their corporate principles in the urban form and housetypes by providing best practice guidance and advice which enhanced the quality of the build. A collaborative approach to development fostered trust which supported the creation of a high-quality new place.
