The Whitehouse Street Regeneration Framework will enable development in the area while making sure development proposals are appropriate to the area in scale and protecting key views.
The regeneration area is well connected to amenities, jobs and transport connections. This means it is a sustainable site for a new mixed use neighbourhood where people have most of their day to day needs within a short trip from home without dependence on cars or building on greenfield sites.
The regeneration framework sets out key principles to make sure development happens at an appropriate scale. Some areas at the edge of site will have to be developed at a scale which responds directly to the prevailing height of the area.
In other areas it will be possible to build to an ‘amplified’ height of four to eight storeys. Where particular buildings sit in this range will depend on the context of the plot and the detailed design of proposals.
There is also an area that may be appropriate for taller buildings of more than eight storeys but these would need to be contextual and demonstrate high quality design.
