Initial masterplan, Public consultation, Hard and soft landscape proposals
Randall Thorp were appointed to carry out landscape consultancy services to assist with the delivery of an outline application for 149 new dwellings in Ordsall, Salford. A key part of the brief involved working with a physically constrained area of open space within the scheme to design a space which had a clear community led recreational function.
By working closely with the client, local community groups and the Council, we were able to propose a new community orchard, public square and cycle route all of which would be located next to an existing volunteer run cafe, which would form the basis of a future Ordsall-wide community hub for new and existing residents.
"An attractive addition to this flourishing community"Simon Ashdown, Director LPC Living
