The Grange Field project offers an exciting opportunity in "Water Sensitive Urban Design" to create a high quality space for current and future generations.

The aim is to deliver a strong ecology-led landscape to maximise amenity and biodiversity benefits, whilst realising the key objectives of managing flood risk and water quality improvements.

We aim to reconnect people with water by incorporating a mosaic of potential habitat types; from grassland, wildflower meadow, reed and woodland, through to in channel riffles, gravel bars and wetland areas.

The aspirations enforce how people might relate to water in a more meaningful way, via an exemplar showcase of how establishing robust Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) principles at the outset can bring multiple benefits.
