Generous landscaping has been proposed throughout the development to create attractive green corridors through the site which will help to promote walking and cycling. While ensuring the development is attractive, this has the added benefit of creating habitats for locally important species and creating biodiversity gains on the site.
Natural habitat, tree planting and social spaces are integrated throughout the sitewide infrastructure. Street trees and verge planting will line primary and secondary streets, and each of the green spaces combine play, sustainable drainage systems, social spaces and habitat.
The infrastructure delivers the biodiversity strategy for the site, creating habitats including flood plain grasslands, hedgerows and streams. Perimeter parklands have also been proposed, with an integrated design approach combining natural spaces and activities.
