We were appointed to promote a greenfield site for housing and educational uses in Cardale Park, Harrogate.
Through discussions with local Planning Officers, we completed an extensive vision document consisting of a thorough local context analysis of the Site and surrounding area. We also identified the opportunities and constraints of the area, which led to the evolution of an effective Framework Masterplan.
The Masterplan delivered considerable benefits to the local community, such as improving the approach to Harrogate, providing a primary school and local centre, integrating an important public right of way, preserving an important ecological area and creating publicly accessible open spaces.
As a result of our work, we were commissioned to prepare an outline planning application and Environmental Impact Assessment for 450 homes and new primary school. Planning permission was granted in 2016.
