opportunity to travel to a range of destinations including Bordon,

Camberley, Farnborough, Farnham, Guildford, Haslemere, Reading

and Yately. There are also interchange opportunities for onward travel

on the national rail network at Aldershot, North Camp and Farnborough

Main Rail Stations with bus services serving these destinations.

Proposed street hierarchy

Most of the proposed street hierarchy follows the orthogonal grid pattern of the existing roads, which is an important element of the historic fabric of the site. New roads are designed to reinforce this orthogonal pattern. This allows the block layout to be legible and provide safe and clear routes for pedestrians and cyclists.

The highways and access design has been carried out in conjunction with the Landscape Strategy, in order to arrive at integrated solutions which reflect the different character areas required around the site.

Wellesley is intended to become a fully ‘walkable neighbourhood’ where

residents will find it safe and convenient to make short trips not by car. A network of pedestrian paths and cycle routes aims to reduce the demand for travel by private car.

Concept for landscaping strategy

A strategy to provide two ‘destination spaces’ provided by the development, at God’s acre and in Parade Park has been agreed with RBC, with the detail of implementation, phasing and equipment type to be confirmed. The remainder of ‘play space’ will be provided by LLAP’s (Local Landscaped Area for Play) within the development areas.

Proposed character areas

Wellesley has been divided into Character Areas in order to provide a good blend of variety and consistency in architectural style, landscape treatment and public realm design. The Character Areas are independent of the Development Zones, in that a single Development Zone may encompass areas which require a different character - see diagram opposite.

As part of the design options considered for The Neighbourhood Centre, options were also considered for landscape treatment

and palette of materials. The footpath and shared surface directly links the School to the Neighbourhood Centre on an eastwest
