Streets and Shared Space

Enhancing the landscape and public realm is a fundamental part of the regeneration. The new streetscape will create tree-lined links between the Urban Quarter and the Parkland Quarter.

Enhancing the Streetscape

Across the masterplan there will be an increase in both the number of trees and in usable open space.

New and replacement tree and shrub planting along streets will create a greener and softer environment.

Residential Amenity and Play

Private outdoor space for each home will be provided in the form of private balconies and communal courtyards.

Private courtyards will provide outdoor spaces for residents to use and green spaces to look out onto. The courtyards will be secure, with good visual connections to homes to avoid unsafe hidden corners.

Smaller play hubs at key locations through the Masterplan will provide children with the opportunity for doorstep and local equipped play in a safe environment.
