Works include extensive hedging and other green buffers, a cycleway, managed habitat for bats and other wildlife, and potentially a play trail, food trail and natural and formal play areas.The existing planting and pond will become part of a new open public realm space at the heart of the development.
Hard and soft sports facilities will be built for the school and communal and private back gardens for the houses. Wildflower meadows, woodland and an attenuation basin for SuDS purposes are also part of the landscape strategy.
