Beaumont Village is the first village to be constructed in the Silverlake development.  The layout and design were developed using the principles established in the flexible Design Framework, which was a condition of the outline planning consent. The framework proposes distinct character areas focussed around a village centre. The village centre takes the form of traditional housing and landscape arranged in an arc around a shared play area.

The architecture interprets the traditional forms and materials of West Dorset, and includes a replica of the iconic Dorset finger-post road signs. The village centre has a more traditional form and appearance with properties at the edge of the village adopting bold contemporary architecture.
All units were sold prior to completion and the village is fully occupied.
