The Northdale Ends site was part of an urban expansion area on the edge of Raunds in East Northamptonshire.
The site was split over two adjacent parcels of land and Architecture519 was appointed by the landowner ‘Barwood Land & Estates’ to design the site masterplan following the principles set out by the local authority.
The scheme proposals created 310 new homes with the focus upon high quality family housing. Existing farm buildings were sub-divided to create community buildings and characterful mews houses and a 65 bed care home was included in the heart of the layout. Commercial units were included to provide local jobs. Detailed planning approval was obtained working closely with the local authority.
The application included a detailed design code for the site which described a series of character areas including the provision of community allotments and orchards.
