A series of distinctive character areas have been established across Phase 3 allowing homes to respond appropriately to their individual setting. Clusters of low-density housing allow visual permeability across the site with glimpses and views to the countryside beyond.
An important aspect of the project has been the acknowledgement of the site’s edge of town location and context. As such the natural environment has been promoted throughout with the existing trees and lakes enhanced to ensure homes have strong frontages overlooking blue or green infrastructure, promoting a healthy lifestyle and connection with nature. Alongside accessible open spaces and cycle and footpath networks, green swathes break up the linear nature of the site, connecting the woodland and lakes to the north with the open countryside and linear park to the south.
