Locking Parklands, Cambridge.
This former RAF site is surrounded by mature woodlands and is located approximately 15 minutes from Weston-Super-Mare. Recently recognised in the What House Awards as one of the top three developments in the UK, this £400 million mixed-use scheme will provide a range of community facilities including retail space, library and school all within walking distance of the new homes.
Working closely with the design team and client, Liz Lake Associates developed a hierarchical approach to layout, drainage and access as part of the landscape architecture. This long term project will bring many benefits to the local community. The first phase of the development has been completed, whilst Liz Lake Associates are currently working on a number of other phases of the scheme.
The scheme has a unique character, with landscape as the unifying element. It is envisaged that the future phases will integrate with and further enhance the first phases of development and continue to maintain the high quality approach to this unique scheme and its landscape design.
