Purley Chase Golf Club & Leisure Park, Nuneaton, Warwickshire
(For Bugler Developments Ltd)
We were commissioned to prepare a landscape masterplan for this 12.5 hectare site near Nuneaton. The site lies adjacent to the existing Purley Chase Golf Club. Planning consent was obtained for ambitious proposals to site a new hotel & leisure centre, holiday chalets, boating lake, adventure playground, tennis courts, a bowling club & a new golf driving range.
Part of the site overlays former mining zones & the water bodies are formed by past subsidence. We developed a digital masterplan based on the building architect’s requirements & specified the structural & detailed planting for the whole development. Consultations were carried out with the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust to create new habitats for amphibians & these recommendations were added to the masterplan.
Six Templars Public House, Hertford, Herts
(For JD Wetherspoon Ltd)
We were commissioned as part of a team by JD Wetherspoon Ltd to provide landscape consultancy for this important town centre site in Hertford. We provided the planting design details & selected the semi mature trees for the development. We also contributed to the hardscape layout for the premises beer garden as well as improving the street frontage of the Castle Hall theatre & the pedestrian entrance to Hertford Castle Park. High quality Yorkstone paving, cast iron hexagonal tree grilles, & semi mature Gleditsia & Ailanthus trees are featured throughout the scheme.
Mirbat Salalah in the Sultanate of Oman
(For the Ministry of Tourism in the Sultanante of Oman)
We were asked to assess this historic & ecologically sensitive landscape for the tourism ministry of the Sultanate of Oman. There are ruins & trails associated with the Queen of Sheba that provide ample opportunities for interpretation & interactive study. One of the proposals is to make a dramatic waterfall that appears over a natural travertine dam called Wadi Darbat during the summer monsoon a year round event. Walkways & trials are planned so that visitors can appreciate this special landscape in comfort & safety. The area is rich in wildlife & bird life. Of particular interest are the Flamingos that gather to feed in the wetlands that remain virtually all year round in the wadis or valleys illustrated below. We prepared a feasibility study for the Omani government & understand that are proposals have been taken forward. Salalah has undergone significant tourist development recently.
