Blue Hayes is the least constrained of the character areas and could accommodate 800-950 homes at an average density of 40-50dph. It is envisaged that higher densities and a semi-formal street pattern shall be used to establish a highly legible character to this area. The focus of activity will be the neighbourhood centre at the London Road/main street junction. Active frontages of at least three stories in height will define the main street and key spaces.
East and west of the development area open space and a formal park will be overlooked by active frontages. To the west an informal ‘green’ with attenuation features, allotments and a play area will provide a setting to established housing on Station Road. Mature trees will provide the setting to a formal park to the east.
