National Shipyard No.1 - Chepstow


We were appointed by Mabey Bridge to undertake an extensive masterplanning project for a residential development located on the bank of the River Wye. From its inception, the development of this site needed to be sympathetic to a number of key considerations; its rich ecological status, the sites interesting industrial heritage and its landscape setting within the River Wye valley adjacent to Chepstow town centre.

The project includes 650 houses and apartments with play areas, centred on a network of waterbodies, green corridors and extensive parkland. Fingers of green infrastructure permeate the housing layout bringing the natural landscape close to the houses to create a sustainable extension to Chepstow that promotes health and wellbeing.
