SUSTAINABLE URBAN EXTENSION IN HAMPSHIRE
Great Covert Park is a sustainable urban extension to Chandlers Ford in Hampshire, inspired by the character of surrounding towns and villages. The scheme provides 1050 new homes and many employment opportunities, with a broad range of facilities to promote sustainable living. A series of distinctive, linked spaces are at the heart of the design, with surrounding buildings that draw inspiration from local examples and create a clear sense of place and identity. This is reinforced by the use of local materials and traditional, vernacular detailing. Twenty-six hectares of the site are retained as managed woodland to encourage wildlife and use by local residents.
