Watchet Urban Design Strategy

Author: Richard Eastham

Date: Feb 29, 2024

Feria Urbanism has been appointed by Watchet Town Council, the Somerset Council, and the Watchet Task Force to produce an urban design strategy for the town. This project is a response to the recent closure of one of the main access roads into the town due to coastal erosion. As a result, current movement patterns are necessarily different to the historic and established ways of getting into and out of the town. The effects of this enforced change upon residents, businesses, retailers, and visitors are as yet unknown. The urban design strategy will use extensive community engagement to develop a robust response to the new situation. The final report will assist the agencies responsible for Watchet to plan for the future, by directing funds and investments into the right projects in the right places.
