The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) secured outline consent for approximately 725 homes and 16ha of public open space on the 50ha site in Basildon. The masterplan proposals include a series of green corridors, informal opens spaces, a local centre, natural play facilities and boundary enhancements to reinforce the local landscape character. Our client Redrow Homes South East, once announced as the preferred developer partner, commissioned The Landscape Agency to develop a landscape constraints and opportunities plan to inform the evolving masterplan. Further stages of our support included production of detailed landscape proposals and input into the Design and Access Statement as part of the Phase 1 detailed planning application. Our involvement is set to continue as further phases are brought forward.
