MOD land disposal
Masterplanning larger scale projects place importance not only on exploiting existing site assets, but also links with the local community. Acting for Inland Homes plc, DA assisted on the redevelopment of a redundant RAF base near Leighton Buzzard. The proposal included 170 units of mixed residential units with a neighbourhood community centre, local park and nature reserve with links to the local footpath and transport network. Working with BM Architects the design included a landscape strategy, detailed design and 5 year management plan. Planning approval was granted in Spring 2015 with phased construction by third parties anticipated until 2018. DA is involved on a number of masterplanning projects including restored gravel workings, mixed leisure and commercial development and a new garden village adjacent SSSI wetland habitat.
