Key areas and opportunities

This village has potential to deliver significant community infrastructure to serve new and existing residents. In addition to formal infrastructure like an education facility, formal sports pitches, and bus routes, we are seeking feedback to help inform how the masterplan evolves and what kind of community infrastructure can be included. Our initial thoughts are below, centred around a mixed-use village centre, but please let us know your thoughts.

Village centre and community hub

The village centre can be an exciting location with placemaking at the heart of its design. We want this space to be a hub of activity for the community with places to gather, collaborate, and enjoy. At this early stage we are open to suggestions and ideas about what kind of facilities residents would like to see, with options available such as multiple uses of a community building, shops, and leisure. If you have any suggestions, please let us know in your feedback.
