North Sprowston and Old Catton, Norwich
Detailed landscape design proposals for a selection of the green spaces within the concept masterplan for an urban extension on the north side of Norwich - a key component of the Norwich's 'Growth Triangle'
The landscape proposals reflect a range of typologies that were used as a benchmark to derive reasonably precise costings for all the spaces within the scheme and thus to contribute to an overall business plan. The proposals include:
- Beeston Park - the centrepiece and a complex landscape scheme which incorporates phased parkland reversion, ecological enhancement and carefully managed public access
- A village green which is designed as a multifunctional space for SUDS, play, meeting, events and an attractive meeting place for the surrounding neighbourhoods
- A small pocket park at a gateway road junction - designed as a focus for views and as a setting for a cafe and small retail/employment development alongside the housing.
