Townscape Solutions was commissioned by Northcreek Estates to draw up a two phase masterplan for up to 335 houses and a nursing home for a former industrial site measuring 12 ha on the edge of Penkridge in Staffordshire.
Issues to consider included existing trees, topography and the need to provide local distinctiveness.
The first phase for up to 165 houses and a nursing home was approved in 2012 with the second phase for a further 170 units approved in Summer 2013.
Persimmon Homes subsequently purchased the site. Townscape Solutions helped with the reserved matters by inputting design ideas and drawing up a supporting design and access addendum. The scheme is now being constructed.
