Landscaping Strategy

An illustrative landscape strategy for the site has been developed by Oobe, an award-winning landscape architecture practice based in Newcastle. This strategy includes:

 

  • a pedestrian boulevard running from north to south through the development
     

  • a simple palette of materials to create a clear hierarchy of spaces and routes
     

  • significant native tree planting in and around the site, with generous pit sizes
     

  • increased legibility and accessibility, to provide a high quality environment, accessible to all
     

  • the inclusion of sustainable drainage features across the site, including parking bays and rain gardens;
     

  • enhancing biodiversity, by creating foraging habitats through soft landscaping
     

  • maximising natural surveillance across the site, through the layout and planting palette
