Bradford Estates’ proposals are based on five fundamental aims:

A Lasting Contribution to Shropshire

We recognise that Shropshire is a special county and want to contribute to its future success and prosperity. We don’t just want to build homes and offices: we want to build a community which contributes to its surrounding area as much as it draws from it for inspiration.

An inclusive and collaborative approach

We know that developments which actively seek to incorporate local knowledge, ideas and aspirations are the ones which turn into valued new communities. We want to work with local residents, businesses and organisations and welcome all views and insights.

A commitment to quality

This is our home and our legacy so we take quality extremely seriously. Bradford Estates has hired specialist consultants across a range of disciplines to ensure we have the best team to create a development of the highest standards. Ultimately retaining control, to ensure that what comes forward on the site meets our own exacting requirements.

Making the most of our surroundings

We recognise that the site doesn’t sit in isolation: it already benefits from having neighbouring villages, towns and RAF Cosford. We want to create a place where people want to work, live and visit; integrating the new with existing areas, to create one cohesive community across the wider area.

Garden village principles

The proposal will take inspiration from some of the key Garden Village Principles such as:

  • Providing a wide range of local jobs within easy commuting distance of homes.
  • Beautiful and imaginatively designed homes with gardens within distinct neighbourhoods.
  • Combining the best of town and country to create healthy communities.
  • Aiming for a net positive impact on biodiversity.
  • Using zero pollution, zero carbon energy generation and smart technologies to minimise contribution to climate change and ensure we are ready for the future climate.
