Mildenhall Riverside West

A landscape-led master plan for an extension to Mildenhall.

The town occupies a unique position between the Fens to the west and the forested, Breckland landscape to the east. Landscape design and landscape character assessment supported the evolving design concept and strategy. The proposals aim to enhance strong local character and identify opportunities for shared use open space, developing existing linkages and corridors between the town centre, the site and into the open countryside beyond. Spaces were also identified for the incorporation of sustainable drainage systems.

Ecological survey was carried out to inform and guide the emerging master plan, which included the development of ecological opportunities, such as chalk grassland, woodland edge and wetland habitats, within the open space proposals.
