Pegasus Group’s design team were appointed to provided urban design services in support of a full planning application for Phase 1 of the Northampton South Sustainable Urban Extension (SUE). The first phase consists of 349 dwellings and associated infrastructure.
The project involved producing a detailed planning layout in accordance with the established design code and with numerous pre-application discussions. The site was a former golf course, with an existing outline consent for up to 1,000 dwellings throughout the wider urban extension, alongside other facilities including a primary school and a local centre. The Phase 1 layout was shaped by a number of tight constraints, including the mitigation of noise impacts from the M1 Motorway, which sits within very close proximity of the site boundary.
Working as part of a wider team of consultants, Pegasus Group’s design team helped to deliver a high-quality, green scheme that respects the local context and fits into the pre-existing wider concept for the Northampton South SUE, whilst working to a tight timeline.
