43% of the site remains as green space. A large central meadowland area provides sustainable drainage as well as a natural playspace and a kick about pitch.
The redesigned woodland will improve areas that are currently not looked after and make them more appropriate for a residential development setting. The existing woodland to the southern boundary consists primarily of plantation stock Scots Pine, Sitka Spruce and Larch. The plantation species would be supplemented with a native deciduous mix, creating structure and providing future succession and life to the woodland. In the long term this would provide habitat and food resource for local fauna, create an accessible and permeable green boundary for the community and form an appropriate setting for the restoration of the currently degraded footpath referred to as GB/2 Core Path.
