Masterplan receives outline consent
16 July 2022
Good news for our Toutley East masterplan which received outline consent last week.
The proposals have been developed with net zero operational potential, for up 130 new homes and a 70-bed dementia care home.
The design celebrates diversity and need, creating a variety of safe spaces to encourage residents to use and come together. The scheme is conceived around various green spaces that form the ‘heart’ of the community and act as functional landscapes, connected to the wider community.
Illustrative proposals have been developed with a tenure blind approach with at least 35% affordable housing provision, while innovative typologies combine to achieve pockets of density, enabling various areas of green and open space throughout the urban grain.
The masterplan has been developed to establish the first principles of passive design, with strategies include optimal orientation of buildings for solar gain, efficient form factors and typologies that harness party wall efficiencies.
