Our clients Redrow have recently submitted their 1,380-home vision for a swathe of land south of Junction 20 of the M62 at Stakehill, Rochdale.
Working as part of the multi-disciplinary design team, Randall Thorp were responsible for the landscape strategy and detailed Design Code.
Around 60% of the site would remain as open space – including a 33-acre park. Robin Buckley, planning director for Redrow Lancashire, said: “Our plans are for a desirable new garden neighbourhood, with the design-led by the local landscape and distinctive character areas created throughout.

This includes plans for a park to the south, featuring footpaths, ecological enhancements, and plenty of opportunities for play and recreation.”
