Masterplanning of 7.29 hectares of land

Boon Brown was appointed by Taunton Deane Borough Council to carry out a limited feasibility for the Halcon Housing Estate in Taunton.

Taunton Deane Borough Council have experienced significant difficulties with the Halcon Estate and wish to explore more radical solutions to the issues that the estate experienced.

The proposals consisted of a complete redevelopment of the Halcon Estate providing a completely new road network, along with a completely different mix of residential development, commercial units and open space provision.

A significant increase in housing density was provided as part of the development proposals.
