Masterplan

The scheme provides play areas for both new and existing residents as well as opening up access to the country park. Additionally, there are allotments provided on site. Other facilities have been deliberately omitted as it is intended that the development work in tandem with the redevelopment of Cotgrave village centre.

The housing proposed at the edge of the development positively addresses the existing main route.

Plan showing vehicular access (red) and pedestrian only access (yellow) into and out of the development

The scheme provides three vehicular connections and a further three pedestrain-only connections to the neighbouring village of Cotgrave. The edges to the development are positively addressed by building fronts.

Links into Cotgrave centre are a key consideration in the development proposals.

Those services located further away are made easier to access through the provision of pedestrian and cycle routes.The main spine route has been designed to accommodate buses. No part of the site is more than a few minutes walk from a bus stop. The decision not to include a wider range of facilities on site was deliberate as to not compete with the regenerated village centre.

Location in relation to public transport

The existing public transport serving the village of Cotgrave is of a high standard, allowing for good access to the surrounding settlements. Buses run through Cotgrave every 10 minutes on weekdays and every 30 minutes at weekends.

The main road of the scheme has been designed to accomodate a bus route. No part of the site is more than a few minutes walk from a proposed bus stop which will encourage the use of public transport.

Phase 1 access

The village of Cotgrave is well connected to the local public transport network, with buses to Nottingham, Keyworth and Bingham. The main spine route through the development has been designed to accommodate buses which would be a convenient alternative to the private car.

The strong landscaping scheme for the development also encourages people to use the pedestrian and cycle routes through the development and when visiting the surrounding settlements.

Planting, boundary details and the retention of boundary green spaces have all been used to help give the scheme a character of its own. The use of the sites location within the country park has been used to influence the look and feel of the main spaces in the development, which will link through the scheme. A number of key details and colours found in Cotgrave will be reiterated within the elevations to tie the development into the local area.

Illustrative soft landscaping strategy from private to public spaces

The strategy for the soft landcaping is to use the setting of the country park to influence the look and feel of the main spaces in the development. There are large areas of open space planned within the scheme which will link through the development to the park and beyond. Different plannting will also be a key feature used to distinguish one part of the scheme from another, as well as a considered look at different boundary treatments.

A good range of parking options are proposed on site, including on-plot, on-street and garage parking. The spaces are well located to serve the units they belong to. Extra space has been made for parking near to areas that are likely to be visited by the wider community and these are well integrated.

Shared areas are often overlooked by housing to encourage people to use them and offer security.

The development provides a very high quality provision of public open space, with play areas, allotments and formal and informal green spaces which compliment the country park. The efficient block structure of the homes means that the other space is allocated to private plots so there should be little by way of 'leftover' space to be managed.

The 'green fingers' are a defining feature of the scheme which link it to the adjacent country park along with the provision of allotments.

11. Public and private spaces

Open spaces provide meeting points and areas of play

The development provides a very high quality provision of public open space, with play areas, allotments and formal and informal green spaces which compliment the country park. The efficient block structure of the homes means that the other space is allocated to private plots so there should be little by way of 'leftover' space to be managed.

The 'green fingers' are a defining feature of the scheme which link it to the adjacent country park along with the provision of allotments.
