The masterplan is founded on the Alton Area Masterplan and Roehampton SPD and focuses on making an accessible, sustainable and characterful setting that successfully stitches into the existing surroundings. New community spaces and facilities are spread around the masterplan to widen access and benefit as many people as possible.
The regeneration programme will be supported by a significant investment in the development and delivery of a community engagement strategy. The aim is to provide a strong creative legacy for the Alton – through various arts, cultural and environmental projects and by building upon the opportunities they create for residents. The activities and projects all focus on delivering an additional layer to the masterplan which engages and interests local people for the long term, not just whilst the regeneration is happening.
