Define staff members successfully promoted the allocation of the site through the Development Plan process, and led the preparation and submission of an outline planning application for the development of a sustainable urban extension that will provide 3,200 new homes, 50ha of land for employment uses, community facilities and associated open space, including a Town & Country Park.  The application was underpinned by a Masterplan developed through an iterative process of assessment and design, where the primary mitigation required to address the sensitive site context and substantial infrastructure requirements were used to shape the proposals from the outset.  The scope of work also included stakeholder and public consultation, a Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment and Socio-Economic Assessment, management of the EIA process, and preparation of comprehensive Masterplan Report.  Define staff members led the negotiations that resulted in the grant of planning permission and led the preparation of a detailed Design Code for the first phases of the development.   Define have subsequently provided advice in relation to revision and implementation of the scheme, and promoted the further development of additional land within the site through the review of the Core Strategy.
