The Challenge

The brief from a joint housebuilder consortium was to prepare and develop proposals for an extensive new residential development, on a complex sloping site at Highstonehall Road in Hamilton. This was the next detailed phase of work for us, having previously secured Planning Permission in Principle for this strategic “Community Growth Area” through an extensive masterplanning exercise.

The Response

We undertook a complete assessment of the site, taking into account detailed factors such as surrounding neighbourhoods, scale, massing and density. A phased development strategy was evolved, in full collaboration with our joint clients and the local authority who wished the detailed design process to be an exemplar of pre-planning process.
