Site promotion and residential development

Details & Location

Staunton–Corse, Gloucestershire, UK



RSK Landscape (now part of Stephenson Halliday) was commissioned to produce a strategic promotion document for a 10.5 ha site in the parish of Staunton and Corse. The developable area being put forward covered approximately 5.02 ha, to accommodate up to 200 new homes. The promotion document and supplementary technical reports include an urban and character study, a site analysis plan, early concept development, a principal capacity study and an indicative masterplan.

Acting as project managers and urban and landscape designers for the scheme, we submitted an outline planning application with a design and access statement and a landscape visual assessment. We have coordinated key documents from the wider RSK group, including a heritage statement, ecology surveys, a transport statement, an arboricultural impact assessment, a flood risk and drainage assessment, archaeological assessments and a waste reduction statement.

The phase 1 masterplan includes the delivery of 50 dwellings involving Passivhaus design and low carbon living; reinforcement of the chartist development principles and conservation area; support to local community services and facilities; highways and public pathways improvements; securing public transport through potential development contributions; and providing a mix of formal and informal open spaces distributed throughout the development area, including edible landscapes such as communal allotments and orchards, which will result in an increase in biodiversity and will enhance the recreational, amenity and landscape value of the site.
