Houghton Regis Place Shaping
A landscape and public realm led ‘place shaping’ strategy for the historic market town of Houghton Regis in Central Bedfordshire.
Through adopting a holistic and overarching approach, the study identifies varying aspects that would assist in fostering a particular sense of place and identity, including;
The integration of existing and proposed communities.
Access, movement and connectivity.
The existing town centre, heritage, leisure, education and employment offerings.
Public open spaces and green infrastructure.
Regeneration of existing residential areas.
Completed alongside landscape architects, The terra firma Consultancy and CBC's Place team, the study also identifies a series of action areas as the basis for further consideration as potential development and open space opportunities.
