RPS produced a Masterplan for this major urban extension including 3,000 dwellings, schools, a mixed-use local centre, employment centre and large areas of open space.

The 218ha site has been promoted through the planning system and represents a major urban extension to the town. The outline application is for a comprehensive mixed use development which will deliver housing and infrastructure, supported by other proposed leisure, education and employment uses. RPS created a vision for the site, captured in conceptual imagery and a clear design statement.

Two neighbourhoods have been designed as a ‘21st Century Garden Suburb’ incorporating a mixed-use local centre. A ‘main street’ running through the scheme is also designed to serve as a new strategic link road. The masterplan also incorporates a multifunctional green infrastructure network with extensive areas of various open space uses.
