Development Overview

Ainsley Gommon worked with Lovell on a successful bid for a scheme of 200 dwellings which had previously secured outline approval. We prepared designs and coordinated the supporting documentation to submit a Reserved Matters application
Our proposals aim to create a strong identity and sense of place, complementing the local surroundings while establishing its own identity. The design integrates the landscape and the built form, providing a cohesive design solution creating a desirable area to live.
POS, on the North border of the site and central to the overall masterplan has been set out with the LEAP within this zone. The dwellings have been laid out to address this are in a ‘Village Green’ type configuration, giving these units a distinct character and proving passive surveillance to the POS. The existing footpath running North-South with mature hedgerow and trees will be retained to create a green corridor running through the site, with houses carefully orientated to overlook this attractive new linear park.

Two attenuation ponds have been proposed, both of which have been designed to be good ecological natural habitats, and will create an enhancement to the ecological value of the site. The public open space accounts for 1.027Ha of the site.

Architecturally, purpose designed corner turning units have been utilised to address the streets and POS from all angles.

A hierarchy of streets has been carefully established to encourage way finding and orientating within the development.
