Some description


Working in partnership with the local authority, we developed a landscape led masterplan which included three distinct neighbourhoods, each with their own character and style. This approach, together with the early delivery of a wide range of community facilities and infrastructure including a country park, schools, shops and sports facilities, enabled the development to be delivered in multiple phases and at a premium to the surrounding area.

The last phase of the development comprises a 500,000 sq ft business park which is nearing completion.

Widely recognised as an exemplar in the creation of new communities, we continue to work closely with the original landowners and the local authority in bringing forward further developments in the surrounding area.
