|:||From the single point of access off Lovedon Lane the houses cluster around a triangular open space – the Grove – while an avenue with houses on both sides runs along the contours. These two elements – an open space and an avenue – lend character and legibility to the scheme. The outer edge is seen as a brick layer, while the inner buildings are clad in timber to recede, avoiding the impression of a wall of development. Looking at the wider site, new allotments, a bike trail and an orchard were included, while the southern part of the site is transformed into an extension to Eversley Park, with allotments, natural play areas and ecological grassland, and reinforced boundary planting and footpaths. The 50-house scheme includes 40 percent affordable housing and was highly commended in the Local Landscape Planning category at the 2017 Landscape Institute Awards.|
