The existing Gannochy Estate has a distinctive character which has been achieved through thoughtful design and a high quality landscape setting. Careful maintenance over the years has resulted in a neighbourhood with a very distinctive character and it is therefore extremely important that the new development becomes an evolution of the existing estate which retains the design ideas behind the original model village.
Sample site layouts and illustrations were prepared as part of the Masterplan process. These were not intended as final proposals but were developed to communicate the design principles and ethos that would underpin the new housing area. These have subsequently been developed into a more detailed design which has now been submitted for planning permission.
