  • Illman Young were involved from its initial concept and promotion of the site for removal from the Green Belt, as part of the South Gloucestershire Core Strategy review
  • Following successful reallocation of the site for development, worked as part of a multi-disciplinary team to develop a site wide masterplan and open space strategy
  • Undertook Landscape Visual Impact Assessment, tree and hedgerow surveys as input to the masterplan and outline application
  • Guided by the visual assessment, concepts for the layout and mass of built form on site developed, also responding to the natural topography and desire to integrate the development within the wider landscape
  • Illman Young led the integration of a sustainable drainage system within the development, from the initial concept developed alongside the masterplan, to providing typical sections so adequate spatial allowances were allowed within the design.
