Our design proposal has three main parts:
Re-uses some of the existing Victorian hospital buildings which will convert well to housing.
Forms two new streets and a central village green with allotments and shared community facilities.
Installs craft, business and light industrial spaces at the heart of the ‘village’ to encourage people to live and work in the community.
The proposal includes a mix of house types all with some type of work space included; a community run CHP plant and combined laundry; a business centre for enterprise and training; and garden or allotment space for every resident.
