The proposals have been developed based on the following key principles:
The site will be ‘opened up’, allowing pedestrian, cycle and bus access through the site for the first time, with new connections to the surrounding areas provided at appropriate locations.
The existing ‘North’ and ‘South’ access points will be retained, providing the only vehicular access into the site.
The proposals have been sensitively designed to ensure that wherever possible the existing boundary vegetation, trees and landscaped bunds are retained and enhanced.
Opening up of the culvert
The proposals will see the opening up of the existing culvert. This will deliver a new water course with generous landscaping improving flood resilience and providing an ecologically rich corridor.
