Landscaping and environment

The proposals will include recreational space for public, shared and private use. As the development is currently in its very early stages no decisions have been made about what the public space could be. We are keen to hear your thoughts to help us develop our proposals.

 

By opening up the site and improving access through it, we hope to encourage a better sense of community and place.

 

Features are likely to include:

 

  • Public space on the ground floor level
  • Outdoor space for every property
  • A new pleasant walk and cycle route through the site providing a link through the public space to the town centre
  • A new children’s play area or urban park for residents and the public to enjoy
  • Attractive landscaping features, such as public seating or a water feature
  • Public art

 

We also hope to enhance the ecology and environment of the site. This could be by planting new trees and flower beds, allotments or water features.

 

Protecting the environment

The buildings will be designed to meet the latest environmental requirements and we hope some of the development’s energy demand will come from an on site renewable energy source.

 

New homes will have high levels of insulation to comply with the latest standards.

 

The development will not increase the risk of flooding in the area and we are actively exploring ways for the Better Queensway scheme to help reduce flood risk on the seafront.
