Illustrative site plan

At the bid stage the vision put forward for Castleward was for a vibrant, high quality, mixed use and sustainable community: a place which will open up a part of the city for new homes, businesses and leisure uses; a place which will provide an attractive new route from the city centre to the railway station and contribute to the long term future of the city centre as a whole.

Sketch entrance to Boulevard

The main feature of Phase One is the Boulevard. This new street has a 6 metre wide stone pavement. It is lined with 3 storey townhouses in locally sourced red brick. On the corners of the Castleward Square and at key locations at either end of the Boulevard, the red brick gives way to natural stone. The Boulevard will be a busy place, with commuters passing by on their way from the city to the station and others using the local businesses that will be housed along half the length of the Boulevard.

Access diagram for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles

The Boulevard forms a major link between the station and the town centre as well as being the spine of the Phase 1 proposals. It is designed to provide a pedestrian and cycle friendly environment, structured around the creation of a grand avenue of new mature tree planting whilst allowing efficient vehicular movement and serving the required parking demand.

The route is well overlooked and well lit at night, providing an attractive, safe-feeling environment. The provision of a wide footpath (typically 6.0m) to the southern side provides a safe, pleasant route for pedestrians and cyclists to meander along under trees. Cycling on the carriageway remains an option for commuters and experienced cyclists but this quieter route will provide an opportunity for children and the less confident to enjoy cycling around Castleward.

Hard Landscaping

The specification of hard materials and furniture complements the ‘Derby City Centre Public Realm Strategy’ to ensure that the new neighbourhood is a clearly recognisable part of the city and is constructed to adoptable standards. However, minor variations to the strategy are proposed in order to reinforce the street hierarchy and create a neighbourhood identity.

Green links

The quality of the public realm and streets in Castleward is of fundamental importance to creating a successful place. The proposals represent an opportunity to create a new urban community with high quality open spaces linked by leafy tree lined streets that connect to the wider surroundings.

This proposed amenity is not restricted to public open space but also includes high quality streets, semiprivate communal courtyards, and private gardens for homes.

The architecture is specific to the scheme. The scale and massing respond to the very different scales at Traffic Street and around the Railway Conservation Area. The design of the buildings, and the materials they use, are also a response to these very different characters.

Tree strategy

The masterplan and detailed proposals for Phase 1 have been developed in close consultation with Derby City Council. In order to achieve the aspirations set out in Derby’s City Centre Eastern Fringes Area Action Plan, removal of 162 trees is anticipated at this time.

This loss will be mitigated by widespread planting of new trees within both the public realm and semi private areas across the masterplan area, including over 100 new trees in the first phase, in particular over 40 new mature trees will form the new avenue along the Boulevard.

Hard Landscaping

The detailed application for Phase 1 sets the principles for material and furniture selection which will be continued to be applied to later phases. However, it is also recognised that standards are likely to change over the duration of this project. Therefore, changes to the materials and the furniture palette will be discussed and agreed with Derby City Council at the detailed design stages for each particular phase.

The masterplan is phased and requires land assembly to realise the vision for later phases. The vision set out in the masterplan shows how the Castleward area could be redeveloped in full but the design of individual blocks takes account of ownership boundaries.

The surrounding street networks, layouts, materials and proportions have been used to inform the design proposals and thus influence the extent of the character areas. There are 6 character areas identified, the relationship of each to the overall masterplan is set out in the Design Code document.
