Involving local people

Local Development Forum

While developing the masterplan and first new homes proposals with our industry and Council specialists, we are listening to voices in our community, capturing concerns, wishes, desires and issues in our designs. 

Our design team meet with local representatives, including parish councillors, youth leaders, residents and school leaders, through our development forum. 

Launched in Autumn 2019, the forum offers a structured design-led environment organised into a series of workshops to engage on a range of topics including site character, land use and landscape.  The process allows us to reconcile varying views through discussion and increasing awareness, while developing the early design. The results from each session are then interpreted and translated into our designs. 

Our next programme will commence in summer 2021.
