Our approach was to embrace the existing proposals whilst focusing on areas where we saw scope to increase the number of homes and to potentially improve the final development with a high quality urban realm.
Our baseline was to use the envelope defined by the parameter plans to assess a more intense unit mix. This approach sub divided phase 2 into 6 blocks. We considered subdivision into various block sizes to assess the potential for these approaches. Analysis suggested a solution that provided scope for improved parking thus supporting increased unit numbers whilst also enhancing the key urban principles established by the parameter plans, to give the developer a holistic vision of the final scheme.
