Tresham Garden Village

Charlton Brown

 

Submission Summary:

Planning for the natural environment is at the heart of proposals for Tresham Garden Village. It is the first UK development to employ Natural Capital Accounting and Ecosystems Services to inform a masterplan that: 
• Re-connects fragmented ancient woodlands
• Fixes a robust central Y-shaped green-blue infrastructure  
• Establishes a tree canopy above the village roofline
• Ensures SuDS and a mosaic of wildlife habitats
• Mitigates against water, air and noise pollution 
• Almost doubles the site’s carbon sequestration capacity with new accessible woodlands
• Delivers an “Edible Tresham” with fruit bearing street trees, Radial Community Allotments and a community press
