The masterplan for the area retains historic features from the existing site, whilst providing homes that are functional, flexible and sustainable. The scheme provides a setting for an original Grade II listed farmhouse which is immediately adjacent, to ensure the history of the site endures and is respected within the new development.

All dwellings will be fully Lifetime Homes compliant, with a 'fabric first' approach that includes large triple glazed windows to ensure that either Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 or 5 is achieved for all apartments and houses.

An existing boundary hedgerow at the centre of the scheme is retained as a focal point in a large park, from which spans a network of pedestrian and cycle routes. Surrounding the park is a diverse selection of housing typologies that create varied and appealing streetscapes, ranging in feel from semi-urban to suburban in response to the Design Code. Courtyard houses, townhouses, terraces and apartments surrounded by mews streets, shared surfaces and courtyard gardens reinforce the enduring design of this customer-focused scheme which provides a tenure-blind mix of private and affordable housing.
