Proposed Mixed Use Development

Aspect Landscape Planning Ltd were involved in the wider strategic masterplan proposals for a mixed use development on a brownfield site of the disused St Oswalds Cattle Market, Gloucester. The strategic urban regeneration project aimed to provide a major retail park, district centre and extensive residential development to meet the future housing needs. The location on the edge of the urban area required careful design and robust landscape buffers to ensure the development could be integrated within the townscape.

Detailed landscape proposals and a landscape and visual assessment for the first phase of the development was undertaken, consisting of the retail park elements which acted as an anchor for the overall development. This was prepared to support the planning application, and the detailed design of the landscape proposals aim to highlight the pedestrian links with the City Centre and also create a high quality environment for the retail park.

Planning Issues: Urban regeneration of brownfield site, townscape impact, strategic proposals for wider mixed use development, pedestrian linkages.
