Coppenhall, Crewe, commissioned by Taylor Wimpey UK Ltd.
A Green Infrastructure approach supported a strong vision for a new neighbourhood development at Coppenhall. Ecological considerations were an important driver, as were the local authorities biodiversity aspirations and visual impact considerations; both in terms of the setting of the historic town and the impact to open countryside. The application for 650 homes was approved by Cheshire East Council for client Taylor Wimpey UK Ltd in early 2012.
