This mixed-use Masterplan proposes a Hospital, a College STEM Centre and Community, Commercial and Residential uses. The residential elements are set out over two phases and provide up to 250 units. The homes are a mixture of houses and flats and range from social housing to mixed tenure.

The masterplan proposed a layout which responded to the specific qualities of the site and presented a bespoke layout which concentrated on the quality of spaces between buildings. The character of the design is considered and responds to the local vernacular with a restrained palette of materials.

The layout embraces the Designing Streets policy, making extensive use of shared surfaces to focus on a pedestrian-led environment with appropriate native soft landscaping. Communal spaces are designed to be welcoming and safe. The housing layouts take a potential variety of needs into account and are designed to be flexible and adaptable in supporting the requirements of the elderly or disabled.
