The organising principle of the layout is a central Avenue that links two open spaces – a Gateway Square at the northern end and an extension of Downhills Park into the site at the southern end of the site. Both these spaces are designed with new pedestrian connections to Downhills Park. A new community orchard and allotments are provided around SUDS. Flat blocks benefits from communal gardens and 2 of them also offer a roof terrace. Some ground floor flats have their own private gardens. All of the houses have their own private rear gardens. The landscape design was developed in collaboration with BD Landscape.
