LDA Design has been instrumental in advising Swindon Borough Council on strategic growth and regeneration. LDA Design’s imaginative, landscape-led framework for up to 12,000 homes and 5,000 jobs to the east of Swindon took a holistic view of the town linking peripheral growth and town centre regeneration. At Wichelstowe, LDA Design gained planning consent to vary conditions on the original outline permission for a 4,500 home and 68,000m2 employment urban extension following a design-led commercial review of an unviable consented masterplan. LDA Design’s revised plan achieved a £30m infrastructure saving and much improved scheme viability. Delivery of the first phase of development has commenced on site.
