The design proposals contribute towards a sense of shared community whilst delivering high quality development that is sensitive to and enhances the historic environment.
The landscape strategy for Chelmsford Garden Community delivers Discovery Trails that will celebrate, reference and interpret the area's rich history by connecting key heritage assets within the Site and linking to the wider area through a network of waymarked north, south, east and west trails.
The trails will run through and connect important assets, highlighting the area's heritage, through interpretation such as boards, signage, wayfinding, landscape features and public art. The trails will use landscape features such earthworks, tree planting and where appropriate public art to reinstate and interpret the postulated line of the earlier Park Pales and Ride from New Hall.
