Policemans Lane, Poole

NEW Masterplanning has recently undertaken a two day community engagement event to assist with the preparation of a planning application for Wyatt Homes on the urban edge of Poole.

The illustrative masterplan will deliver 70 new dwellings incorporating a mix of apartments and larger family homes. Buildings will be constructed with a mix of materials including brick, render and timber and will be 2 and 2.5-storeys with some accommodation in roofspace. This complies with the development brief and is in keeping with the local character. There will be at least 2 car parking spaces per dwelling, the majority will be on-plot parking with on-street visitor parking.

The proposals include the provision of a Suitable Alternative Natural Green Space (SANGS) to reduce pressure on the heathland. It also required a visual and landscape appraisal and the design of an attractive landscaped bund along the A35 boundary. Dense landscape planting and bunds screen views and noise from the dual carriageway and give the impression of a rural edge.
