Plan identifying pedestrain links through the development to key local infrastructure

Two additional footpath links are provided within the development in addition to the main entrance route. These 'short cuts' will encourage pedestrian and/or cycle access to facilities in the local surroundings rather than having a dependnce on using vehicles.

3. Public transport

The development offers a number of pedestrian routes through the development which provides access to local facilities.

The tree lined spine road encourages walking by making the route more pleasurable. The main footpath onto Bosworth Road and the two additional pedestrian footlinks to the adjacent recreational space and adjoining footpath reduce car dependency.

4. Meeting local housing requirements

Private units (no shading) and affordable units (shaded grey) are shown to share street frontage and integrate seamlessly

The proposed affordable housing units are well integrated within the design and share elevational detailing and materials. As the housing type mix for the development as a whole is varied, the affordable housing units will not be visually distinctive from the exterior.

The concept plan helps to define the different areas based on massing, access and vistas

Different character areas are promoted within the design through a variety of methods. Defined areas on the site include the plots which front the national forest planting, the courtyard areas and the homes around the Village Lane. The differences in the massing, views offered and elevational treatments throughout the scheme provide different character areas.

Soft landscaping strategy

The scheme was developed with the National Forest Company and includes an area of new tree planting within the site. The design concept was to give every house a view of a tree and provide high quality and established planting. Boundary hedgerows and trees have been retained and a high quality scheme of soft landscaping to plots will be provided. The integration of a tree lined avenue along the spine road ensures that planting forms an integral part of the design and a clear visual anchor to the development.

The surface treatment plan shows the integration of high quality carriageway surfaces.

Different surface treatments have been used reinforce character areas. The village lane to the south of the development particulary exhibits this idea with the use of its own surface treatment to define the area.
