Success meant understanding the roles and needs of both the public and private sectors

Whilst modern in concept, the Kilnwood Vale urban extension draws on the traditions of the Garden City Movement of the 19th century, with a tree-lined boulevard as its central spine and a wealth of green courtyard and corridors in between the buildings. It is designed to be a very pleasant and neighbourly place to live, making the most of its surrounding country views.

We have been involved with this scheme since the early planning stages when we demonstrated that development would be more sustainable, deliverable, and viable on our client’s site rather than any other site, and we proved that development could be achieved without building a bypass.

The Highways Agency (now Highways England) agreed to our proposals, and Crawley and Horsham Core Strategies allocated the site for development. By avoiding the delivery of the bypass, our client was spared significant costs and was able to increase spending on more sustainable travel solutions such as bus rapid transit and railway station proposals.

We were central to the development of the masterplan for the whole site and responsible for the detailed design of the main access junction, residential roads, footways, cycleways, and equestrian routes within the phase 1 application.

Kilnwood Vale adheres to today’s sustainability principles, making daily essentials easily accessible without total reliance on the car and carefully integrating the natural environment into the overall plan.
