The driving force behind the proposal is not simply about building more homes. It is about building more beautiful and sustainable homes and neighbourhoods that once again speak to our sense of identity, drawing on our architectural heritage with access to the amenities and green spaces that can transform a place from a development into a community.
Amenities such as playgrounds, sports fields, allotments and cycle paths will allow the community to play, connect and thrive. A central hub area aims to link the two sites and is earmarked for leisure and commercial uses and includes a community pond and coworking spaces.
