Town and Visual Impact Assessment
We provided Townscape and Visual Impact Assessment services for the application which seeks approval for the delivery of 750 homes and 200,000 sq ft of offices. The proposed residential development, known as the Lumina Village, will also contain a 100-bedroom hotel and a primary school.
The design is rooted in an understanding of the townscape quality and condition, a sense of place, legibility of the existing and proposed pedestrian and vehicular routes, functionality and flexibility of the buildings and open spaces, the heritage and historic context, the need for a variety of amenity and recreational spaces, and views and visual amenity. The layout, design and massing of the proposals are underpinned by a strong set of urban design principles.
The TVIA demonstrated that the development would have overall beneficial Townscape and Visual Effects.
The application was granted permission in September 2020. This project forms part of our continued work on the wider Trafford Civic Quarter Area Action Plan.
