RM01 consists of two distinct spaces. The first is a wide boulevard and forms part of the entrance into

the site. Although it exists in its own right with its own character, it is also seen a continuation of the main access road from the north. The second space is more of a public amenity and contains play areas and

a landscaped swale. These spaces are framed by houses, some are terraced, semi detached and linked detached. The site layout clearly highlights the design strategy of different house types being used to create or inform a particular character area. This also applies to the heights of the buildings and how they have been located throughout the site. The heights range from two, two and a half and three storey’s. Most of the taller buildings are located within the larger public open space where the larger scale is appropriate and is easily accommodated.

Three storey buildings have also been used on key corners and a taller building at the main entrance to the south. There is also a bespoke ‘tower’ house which takes its reference from the towers of the original hospital building. These special house types, which include a fourth floor rooftop study and terrace space, are located at each link point to future phases. They are like sentries marking and highlighting these key locations.

Site accessibility

The masterplan identifies a number of areas of open space and RM01 contains a LEAP which conforms to the requirements of the local plan. It is located in an accessible location and will enjoy natural surveillance from the surrounding dwellings which are found on the northern edges of the area. It is within 5 minutes walk and not more than 400m walking distance of its catchment area. A buffer zone of not less than 10 metres in depth has been provided between the edge of the activity zone and the boundary of the nearest property containing a dwelling.

The basic premise of the masterplan with regard to cyclists is that there should be no separation of cycle routes from roads within the masterplan as this would increase car speeds.

As part of the RM01 works a pedestrian and cycle route from the north east point of RM01 through the future RM07 to the masterplan access point on Uttoxeter new road is being temporarily instated. This will enable access through the site and out of the site proir to the completeion of RM07.

The proposed pedestrian and cycle route to the north into RM07 will not functon untill the completion of the adjoining phases. When complete it will link RM01 directly with the centre of the masterplan the Hub, beyond to the north access and north tot he green wedge.

The streets 12b and 12e have been designed as shared sufaces these will not be adopted and will therefore have allocated parking and planting bays these will enable grater pedestrian permeability. The swale its self being usable as a public open space is accessable to pedestrians.

The initial concept of raised tables and home zones at road junctions throughout RM01 has been retained in the orthogonal delineation of these areas defined by similar coloured paving in contrast to the tarmac streets.

Cycling will be encouraged through the provision of cycle storage provision within each residential unit in RM01. The RM01 Travel Plan submitted with the outline application will seek to ensure that targets for encouraging walking and cycling trips are reached.

For compliace with achieving code 4 of the CFSH bicycle storage is provided for each dwelling either in an extra long garage provision or a garden shed with direct external access from back edge of pavement.

Masterplan showing different use areas

The character areas within the masterplan reflect the site topography, landscape and heritage.

Mixed-use gateway

The mixed-use gateway will mark the main arrival into the site from the north. The residential area RM02 to the north having apartment buildings fronting Kingsway and to the south Bramble house and a proposed commercial building. RM02 will have it’s own distinct character being physically isolated from the rest of the development by the exisitng open aboretum. The commercial area to the south of the main access will have it own charater by the nature of the buildings use and their proximity and integration with the exisiting Bramble House . These two areas are separated from the rest of the site by the former entrance road which also contains a number of TPO trees and now acts as a parkland buffer.

The main boulevard.

This area is both residential and commercial on either side of the main access road. Both will front the wide tree lined swale which runs south to the centre of the development.

North circular and crescent.

The north circular is the most distinctive exisitng element of the site, and will have echoes of the more formal architecture fronting the exisitng tree lined avenue, with a crescent built around the significant group of trees at it’s centre. This will provide a unique sense of arrival into this part of the site, it will connect the exisitng hospital buildings to its north side and provide a link to the central hub from the north.

RM04 the hub.

The boulevard leads south to the center of the developement the hub. This has a public open space surrounded by town houses and apartments some of which are for “extra care”. There will also be some shops and cafes and other A1 use here to create a dynamic center to the development.

RM07 urban area.

The area to the south of the Hub is seen as another area with a separate character. It has a higher density and a more urban feel, mostly being terraces houses and fringed to the south by an open space. and the exisitng fire station.

RM05 the valley

This area will have a predominantly residential character, with family housing as it is within the valley which contains the green wedge public open space.

RM01.

To the south of the masterplan area this with its own vehicular access from the south but linked by pedestrian and cycle route to the north is an area with its own character. The boulevard from the north being an extension of the main boulevard which cuts through the whole masterplan and provided one of the main axis of the scheme.

RM03 quite zones.

The area bounded by the north circular and the boulevard are seen as a character area where home zones and relativeley little through trafic will create a quiet hinterland.

RM06 the link area.

An area where the potential link through to the south could be reopened in the future. To the north part there are more home zones to the inner areas between the third axis of the site street 3, the link to the open space to the north and the continuation of the main pedestrian through route from the Hub. To the south of the link another distinct character area backing onto RM01

Soft Landscape Plan

The masterplan identifies a number of areas of open space and RM01 contains a LEAP which conforms to the requirements of the local plan. It is located in an accessible location and will enjoy natural surveillance from the surrounding dwellings which are found on the northern edges of the area. It is within 5 minutes walk and not more than 400m walking distance of its catchment area. A buffer zone of not less than 10 metres in depth has been provided between the edge of the activity zone and the boundary of the nearest property containing a dwelling. Where possible this has been stretched to 20m from the habitable room fac?ade of the surrounding dwellings. Five types of play equipment have been provided along with a small games area. This play area is next to a swale which will appear as a depression in the ground to accommodate peak rain fall flows only.

Paving

The hard landscaping of the plots comprises the parking bays and footpaths to the threshold. The driveways will be block paved with the space allocated as the parking bays to be a porous block paver. The rest of the driveway will be in block pavers to match the porous paving to avoid a cluttered look to the driveways. A minimum 1.2m wide footpath will lead up to the threshold in a paving unit colour to tone with the driveway paving. The colour choice will be greys and reds for the paving to compliment the building materials types with final selection yet to be confirmed.

The north circular is the most distinctive existing element of the site, and will have echoes of the more formal architecture fronting the existing tree lined avenue, with a crescent built around the significant group of trees at it’s centre. This will provide a unique sense of arrival into this part of the site, it will connect the existing hospital buildings to its north side and provide a link to the central hub from the north.

The green wedge provides the informal open space and formal sports requirements for the development.

The catchment for NEAP in the NPFA Guidance (600m) located at the edge of the green wedge covers the development area, whereas the large play area catchment in the SPD (400m) does not.

The catchments for the 5no LEAPs/toddlers play areas (240m/200m) as required by the original Design and Access Statement, means that there is overlap in the catchment areacoverage. It is assumed that an area will be required within RM01 so that provision is made at an appropriate time within the development programme. One of the areas at the Hub or at the crescent town houses could be omitted, but omitting one of these areas would contravene the requirements of the approved D and A statement.

It is assumed that the NEAP and LEAP can be combined into 1 play area at the green wedge.

The requirements for facilities in each area, its size and buffer distances are set out in the submitted public open space statement and accompanying drawing.
