Client: Bovis Homes Plc
Moore Environment were commissioned by Bovis Homes to provide strategic landscape proposals, detailed landscape design and a long term management plan to assist in the creation of a sustainable, high quality development to complement and enhance established surrounding neighbourhoods. The scheme comprised residential housing and a commercial complex on a brownfield site near Chester.
To support the planning application Moore Environment provided a landscape masterplan and detailed planting plans with an image palette of proposed planting for incorporation into the Design and Access Statement. We also produced NBS Landscape specification for the design together with a long term management plan for the landscape scheme.
Key features of the design included:
- the creation of a green framework across the estate, including the introduction of amenity open space, leisure route and play areas
- incorporation of SUDs solutions including dry ponds and permanent ponds with decked bridges provided access across where the features intercepted amenity routes
- artwork and raised planting beds within the mini-plaza of the commercial complex
- play spaces and surfaces designed to optimise opportunities for natural play and provide a diverse range of play equipment suitable where possible users with a varying range of physical abilities
