South West Quadrant

This 4 ha site forming the remainder of Phase 2, is situated between Bridport Road and Middle Farm Way with views towards historic Maiden Castle. Planning approval was granted in 2006 for 190 homes including a mixture of shared ownership and rented accommodation, shops, offices and restaurants.

The focal point of the development is the Buttermarket with small retail units and workshops lining the square to provide an artisan flavour. Regular community events take place in the Buttermarket including Christmas markets and Easter egg hunts, mainly organised by local businesses.

The development was built by CG Fry & Son Ltd and Morrish Builders.

Architects: Ben Pentreath, Jonathan Holland, Craig Hamilton, George Saumarez-Smith
