Define acted for UK Strategic Land in the formulation of a vision and strategic masterplan for a series of linked garden village settlements north of Northampton. The vision includes for over 5,000 dwellings, with associated community and village centre uses, a large scale employment area, park and ride interchange, sports arena and hospital, along with the duelling of the A43. The vision was widely consulted on with key local and regional stakeholders, who were largely in support of the design quality led approach. The vision synthesised a traditional garden suburb character and ownership model with the distinctive character of the local “ironstone” villages. The first phase of the vision is allocated within the adopted West Northamptonshire JPU Core Strategy.
