Arborfield Green – Masterplan Proving


We carried out a masterplan proving exercise at Arborfield Green (formerly Arborfield Garrison) in Wokingham. The existing masterplan provides a vision for 2,000 new homes, a neighbourhood centre, a school and 80 extra care flats for the elderly. It was our task to check that these ambitious plans for the brownfield development site are deliverable.

The process began by reviewing and reconciling a wide range of technical and planning constraints, such as overhead power cables, an oil pipeline and protected high quality trees and hedgerows. Our work progressed phase by phase, culminating in a master accommodation schedule and illustrative plan for the whole site.
