Space Group were the lead masterplanners for Wynyard Park Ltd to assist them in bringing forward a mixed use development on their consented strategic business park site. The site was formerly part of the historic late 18th Century rural estate of the Londonderry family. This estate and the wider study area, was comprehensively surveyed for both landscape and visual quality, and survey findings used to inform a landscape-led masterplan. An assessment of surrounding settlements was also undertaken as part of the commission. We produced a range of schematic approaches and related parameter plans to guide the emerging residential areas. Our masterplan draws upon these characteristics and provides distinctive residential neighbourhoods, including some self build plots. We have worked in collaboration with AECOM Transportation, KWM Infrastructure Engineers, Prism Planning and Wardell Armstrong. The illustrative masterplan has now received outline planning approval for 229 houses: 200 executive homes; 16 bespoke dwellings; 13 high sustainable self build plots. The development sites are currently progressing with private housing developers at various stages on site.
