The greenfield site is located to the south of Doncaster.
It is bounded to the north by a business park, to the east and south by the M18 connecting into central Doncaster, and to the west by the Woodfields Plantation residential area.
The site includes two distinct areas separated by a raised, densely wooded former railway track, which is used as an informal footpath and cycle route. Fields and protected woodland lie immediately to the south.
The site has been designated for residential and supporting uses in Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council’s (DMBC) Unitary Development Plan for over 10 years. DMBC’s ambition is to become Europe’s most sustainable borough, and Carr Lodge has been identified as the first ‘low-carbon town’ as set out in Doncaster’s Renaissance Charter.
An excellent example of contemporary urban design. JTP should also be commended for their commitment to community engagement.
