The site is home to a range of diverse species and valuable ecological features including wildlife sites
and hedgerows. The development proposal offers an excellent opportunity to protect and enhance many of these features. Ecological survey work is currently being undertaken and the results will be submitted with the outline planning application.
Landscape and Visuals
The outline landscape design will embrace the retained ecological features and aims to create an attractive, safe and welcoming residential and business environment, whilst protecting views from existing residential areas.
The development team is working closely with Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council Highways Department and the Highways Agency to assess traffic impact on existing roads and to specify, design and agree any necessary improvement works.
Flood risk assessment and drainage design work is being undertaken to ensure that the development includes suitable and considered drainage outfalls and that any effect upon the hydrology of the area is fully considered.
