Sustainability

Retention of Trees - The mature belts of trees located on the edge of the site, and those located at the site’s entrance and within the south eastern and north western parts of the site, will be retained where practical. Public access to the 35 acres of woodland will be provided.

Watercourses & Ponds - To remain in situ and be enhanced, creating an attractive lake and lakeside area as part of the Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS).

Ecology - Habitats of protected species have been identified along the watercourse edge or within vegetation. St. Modwen will protect and mitigate any disturbance of these species.

Flooding and Drainage - Only 5 per cent of the site falls within Flood Zones 2 and 3A. Development will not be undertaken within this zone.

 

Access and Movement

The site has been designed to promote walking, cycling and public transport as realistic modes of travel, while recognising the need to provide access to and from the site for journeys made by the private car.

The following are being implemented as the site develops:

  • Direct cycle and pedestrian connections, particularly between employment and residential parts of the site will link with the Greenway extension that runs throughout the site

  • Direct bus route connections with the surrounding network including a ½ hourly peak service between Morton in Marsh and Stratford upon Avon (increasing the frequency of the current service)

  • Road improvements: to the entrance to the site, inclusion of a new roundabout at the Campden Road/Shipston Road junction and funds allocated to improve other junctions in the area.

  • Linkage to and extension of the Greenway from Stratford-upon-Avon through the site

  • Encouragement to businesses on site to use the already present rail connectivity
