Terminus Drive, Basildon, Essex

Planning application proposal for the re-generation of a brown field site on Terminus Drive near Pitsea Train Station to provide 217 high quality new homes.

After a master planning study, a long break and revised brief, we took the initial feedback received both form the locals and the Council, and embarked on the design of a smart re-generation proposal on this circa 2ha brownfield site.

Creating a high-quality residential neighbourhood adjacent an elevated dual carriageway and a waste facility presented the biggest challenge. Good site access and public transport connections, the nearby mainline train station enabled us to consider higher densities. We used the site access roads and parking zones to create buffers between the proposed buildings and the adjacent land uses. Provision of ample green spaces and a truly sustainable approach to both the site layout and the design of the buildings were key to achieve an outstanding proposal.
