DK-CM are working on a Place Plan for Jaywick Sands on the Essex coast, working with Tendring District Council.
We are part of a multi-disciplinary team led by HAT Projects and including Igloo, Maccreanor Lavington, Antea and Potter Raper Partnership, to develop a plan for the renewal of the existing plotlands areas as well as new development on 30 hectares of land owned by Tendring District Council adjoining the existing settlement.
Within the wider team DK-CM has particular responsibility for developing proposals for the renewal and improvement of existing areas.
Jaywick was first developed in the late 1920s on a stretch of low-lying land south of Clacton-on-Sea. Today it is one of the very few surviving ‘plotland’ communities to retain its original, very particular layout and density, but is also one of the most deprived places in the UK.
