Our proposals follow a best practice approach to design and place making while protecting and building upon the existing character and community values of the Lakewood site. This will ensure the creation of a safe and vibrant community for both current and future generations.
The landscape vision was to create a sustainable, safe and attractive community, integrating existing and new neighbourhoods and stunning ancient woodland surroundings, through an improved open space and movement network.
The landscape design takes inspiration from the richness of the ancient woodland to create a new park and community square as well as streets that are carefully designed to address the difficult topography of the site. New links are created for access to the woodland.
