Our landscape and visual appraisal expertise identified suitable areas for housing and wider green infrastructure improvements, examining how they can work together to shape the edge-of-settlement development to reinforce the New Forest location.

Edge-of-Settlement Approach

North West Fordingbridge forms a natural extension to the existing settlement and is set within close proximity to the New Forest National Park and Cranbourne Chase & West Wiltshire AONB.

Working closely with Thrive Architects and New Forest District Council, we developed the phase 1 planning submission which was granted full permission in 2017.

Green Space Integration

Our proposals delivered a number of enhancements including a new riverside park that ties in with existing green links to the town centre. This newly created SANG (Suitable Alternative Green Space) park forms part of a safe pedestrian route to the town’s schools and colleges. There is also provision for naturally-equipped play along the walkway that includes references to the historic railway line.
