Services

Brief

Redevelopment proposals for the 280 acre former paper mill site comprising 450 new homes, an employment park, community hub and over 57 acres of public open space.

Although predominantly brownfield, the site presented many challenges with mill ponds, areas of green belt, ancient woodland,  steep topography to the river valley and a culverted section of river.

 

Solution

Underpinned by our comprehensive arboriculture survey, the landscape masterplan sought to utilise the sites natural features to complement the surrounding woodland and green space and provides attractive landscaping, public amenities and functional infrastructure.

Public consultation with local residents received positive feedback and support.

 

Results

Outline planning permission was granted in summer 2015.
