Redwood Heights is a development located in the Plymouth suburb of Plympton.

Plympton itself is an amalgamation of several historic villages. Chaddlewood is a recently developed neighbourhood and the home of Redwood Heights.

With easy access to a wide range of facilities, Redwood Heights is a prime location for a variety of people. This new development will see the addition of 190 dwellings and the conversion of the current green space into a community park.

Public transport is readily available with a sheltered stop within 400m of the site. Both of the local stops offer access to routes 21 and 21A, these routes travel through the centre of Plymouth and as far as St Bardeaux.

Redwood Heights offers excellent access for schools with 2 primary schools within 1km of the development (Glen Park Primary School and Chaddlewood Primary School), a secondary school within 1.4 mi (Plympton Academy) and the Longcause Community Special School within 1.3 miles. Both primary schools can be accessed via wide, well lit pathways.

Other notable facilities include: CO-OP supermarket and Tesco Express (1km and 1.5km respectively), Plympton Town Centre (2.5km) and Glenside Medical Centre (2km).

Street layout including emergency and pedestrian access

The entrance to the development, extending from Poplar Close and Hickory drive, forms a gateway into the development, with a pocket park seperating both streets, which framed by a clearly defined townscape provides a strong sense of arrival.

Travelling through the development:

Primary Route

Defined by a strong built line with terraces and semi-detached units, the primary loop forms the main route through the site. Regular tree planting, pedestrian walkways and street lighting allow for safe navigation for all through the site.

The Lanes

The lanes provides a more informal street pattern that links the primary routes northern and southern stretches. These streets benefit from a shared street system which gives priority to pedestrians and cyclists over motorized vehicles. This provides a safer environment for cyclists and pedestrians and allows for a more appealing aesthetic.

Green Connection

The green connection is defined by strong regular building lines mainly consisting of terraced units along with some three storey flats providing natural surveillance and defining a main pedestrian corridor.

Community Park

This open greenspace not only reinforces the green character of the development but offers valuable connections to the local area for pedestrians and cyclists. A connection to the woodland area to the north of the community park provides a pleasant, green access point for existing residents of the local area and residents of the development.

3. Public transport

Redwood Heights benefits from a considerate design which recognises the benefits of, and actively encourages, the use of sustainable modes of transport.

Shared spaces allow pedestrians, cyclist, cars and other vehicles to co-exist in an environment where pedestrians have priority. These areas are subtle in nature, designated by different road materials which cause drivers to slow naturally to a safe speed.

The aptly named green corridor offers a pleasant route through the development with views over the community parkland.

Pedestrian footways and shared spaces can be used to navigate from any point of the development to the entrance, from which, pre-existing footpaths provide a safe throughway to the various bus links in the surrounding area.

5. Character

Green connection

Through the careful choice of external materials, attentative landscaping and thoughtful building styles, we have created stand-out areas brimming with character.

The Primary Route

This area draws on the character of the formal historic High Street in Plympton along Fore Street. The primary route is defined by a strong build line with terraces and semi-detached units. The facing materials palette references Fore Street and builds on the existing locally defined character.

The Lanes

Defined by an informal street pattern, The Lanes provides the link between the primary routes on the northern and southern sides of the development. The Lanes consists of semi-detached and detached dwellings, along with the shared spaces, with no formalised pathways, in which the pedestrians have priority. Characterised by informal landscaping and larger front gardens, The Lanes has settled into its more informal, secondary role.

Green Connection

Regular building lines consisting of terraces and some three-storey flats perfectly frame the wider countryside whilst providing strong, natural surveillance. The green connection provides a visual connection to existing landscapes whilst building a new identity and a strong sense of place. This character area acts as a natural, pleasant thoroughway, connecting the development to the community parkland.

Redwood Heights will deliver a high quality of landscape treatment and design. This will include the creation of a community park. The landscape strategy will, where possible, ensure the retention and reinforcement of existing boundary trees and hedgerows and the creation of a range of new native habitats.

Each character area will be enhanced through the introduction of attractive tree and shrub planting providing variety in terms of colour, texture and fragrance dependent upon the character area. Trees and shrubs to front gardens and verges will be highly effective in integrating the built form into a softened landscape context.

The Primary Route will utilise two main surface material types, natural block paving and tarmac with an aggregate mix. Natural block paving will be used only at key nodes and junctions to define and articulate these spaces as well as slow traffic. Subservient spaces just off the primary route will utilise a black tarmac finish.

The Lanes character area will primarily utilise tarmac with the dished channels providing a decorative element within the street.

The Green Connection will use paving flags to define the east-west pedestrian axis as an important connection feature within the scheme. The hard surfaces around the green square are finished in resin bound gravel to give a more park appropriate finish adjacent the community park and green square.

Granite setts will be used to provide a visual break between differing surface materials.

Low level planters have also been integrated within the street to further aid the target of minimal traffic speeds as well as enable specific green elements within the streetscene to be more secure from passing traffic movement.

Shared streets with slightly elevated footpaths provide a comfortable and stable walking experience whilst also making travel as easy as possible for wheelchair and pram users.

Discreet landscaping, changing road materials and non-uniform road shapes create a safer environment for pedestrians by naturally slowing vehicle speeds without the need for obtrusive signs.

Both fields as existing have no direct surveillance. In order to combat this lack of surveillance and positive frontage, units within the northwest corner are orientated to directly overlook the community park.

Visually, the community park lies on higher ground overlooking land to the west. The community park will retain and improve existing desire lines to create a walking route around the perimeter of the park. The park will also provide a community orchard and growing space, providing opportunities for education, community engagement and participation. Trees have been carefully selected according to scale, colour and space. Within the community park, varieties appropriate to the area will be used, including Oak, Lime and Field Maple.
