100% of homes have dedicated amenity space. 10 open-sided sunny gardens provide private-communal spaces for residents with social tables, biodiverse planting, integrated seating and informal under-5 play equipment to encourage interaction. 11 pocket parks enrich the public realm with planting species chosen to enhance the varying architectural expressions, reinforcing wayfinding through place-making of identifiable character. Existing mature trees form entrances into Community Gardens and ecological Moselle Walk. Multi-functional hardscape to Urban Square creates a bustling, active heart to the development.
Planning HistoryThe masterplan fundamentally rethinks the site from an earlier consent in 2012, increasing employment floorspace ten-fold, more than doubling the number of affordable homes, almost trebling the dual aspect percentage and maximising the quality of a diverse public realm. London Borough of Haringey Planning Committee on 12th February 2018 voted overwhelmingly to support this hybrid planning application which forms a key element in the evolving Wood Green AAP.
