munro + whitten produced the development masterplan, with the client, for a new neighbourhood of 800 houses. Progression of our masterplan with the architects and engineers to ensure the public realm, spatial form and visual links define the housing layout and roads.

An extensive path and cycleway network links this new neighbourhood to the town centre. Retention of the hedgerow network and mature trees as key features in the development. Detailed design of all hardworks including the form and finishes to roads, lanes and parking courts. Create a design palette for walls, fences, railings, furniture and lighting. Detailed design of the planting to create distinctive characters for the public realm across the neighbourhood.
