North Yorkshire

The Landscape Agency was commissioned by the Halifax Estates to undertake a detailed site analysis to inform an emerging master plan and Framework Document in response to the City of York Council’s Local Plan Preferred Sites (June 2013).

The vision for the new town of Whinthorpe across 300 hectares includes: 5,580 new homes, quality “green” build, landscape led, respecting surrounding landscape, a forerunner in flood risk management, wide, open spaces, walkable – not dominated by cars, community-focused and mixed-use with opportunities for employment and education.
