St Tudy Community Village Shop, Bodmin
St. Tudy Parish Council contracted The Bazeley Partnership for the provision of a new replacement Community Shop and Post Office in St Tudy.
The current village Shop was to close within a few months and the complete loss of such an important local amenity would have had a serious and detrimental impact within the small Bodmin village. Because of this, The Parish Council decided to pursue Planning Consent for a new detached building in order to continue to offer the St Tudy Community similar retail provision and – equally as important – maintain Post Office services.
Since it had become known that the existing village shop and Post Office was to close, the Village Community and Parish Council have been active in seeking opportunities to create a replacement provision.
After considerable investigation of possible options of what could be done to replace the vital community shop and Post Office, it became clear that the only viable option was to procure a new dedicated Shop building.
The Bazeley Partnership were successful in designing the community shop to meet the client’s brief: quick to build, require little maintenance and incorporate appropriate levels of sustainable technologies in order to reduce CO2 emissions and reduce energy consumption.
The building sits comfortably in its context adjacent to the Parish Hall and contributes to creating a sense of place for the community.
