Branston Locks

An urban extension site for up to 2,500 homes and 10Ha of commercial development. Nigel Cowlin Ltd has been involved with this major development project from inception to implementation (ongoing). This started with landscape and visual issues input to feasibility testing and site promotion exercises. Soon after came production of the Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment Environmental Statement technical chapter and landscape strategy submissions supporting the planning application. With Outline Planning Permission in place, as part of the retained multi-disciplinary team, Nigel Cowlin Ltd progressed to deal with strategic planning conditions relating to requirements for a site-wide open space strategy. More recently the practice has been engaged with production of detailed landscape proposals for the strategic open spaces provided within the development, as well plans addressing management and alterations to the several public rights of way crossing the site.

Work on this development engages with all development and planning disciplines and addresses a wide range of technical challenges. The site benefits from an attractive location alongside the sharply rising Needwood Scarp and encompasses a stretch of the Trent and Mersea Canal. Development is progressing with individual phases being sold on to house developers and commercial operators.
