Working with UBU Design landscape architects and ETC Urban architects, we developed a master plan to guide the redevelopment of a redundant school site in Suffolk as it is redeveloped into a new community campus with a continuing emphasis on education and sport.
Our master plan also expressed a coherent vision for the site, within the context of the town as a whole, which will help attract investment and funding, and seeks to explain the vision to the wider public in an easy to understand way. This was seen as crucial if the community campus proposal is to maintain its current high level of public support and understanding.
The focus of the campus will be a broad mix of community and educational uses within which sports, health and fitness will play a significant role. Within this environment a healthy sporting culture can develop.
A fundamental underpinning of the master plan is the concept of a campus whereby different sports groups, clubs and organisations are located together on a single campus site and share facilities. This will allow different clubs and different participants to gain a greater exposure for what they do and how they operate to help them obtain a wider audience for recruitment.
The Feria Urbanism team has produced other urban strategy reports for Bournemouth, Hemel Hempstead, Weymouth, Liverpool, Bexleyheath and Preston. If you wish to know more about these other urban strategy projects, please get in touch.
