The masterplan focuses on the public realm, at the heart of which is a new central park and community centre. A new hierarchy of streets create character areas relating to the surrounding urban form, providing a variety of identities for the different parts of the estate.
The plan incorporates new technologies for heat and power, a strategy to develop and enhance the ecology of the area and the placement of art. The plan was developed in consultation with stakeholders and the local ommunity.
