We proposed to rationalise the highway layout on Exeter Road to reduce dominance by vehicles and enhance the environment for sustainable transport. This will be achieved by introducing a traffic calming scheme with raised tables, road narrowing, wider footways and new cycle routes. A person-friendly environment will be created by seamless transition between the development’s public realm and the adopted highway.
The development’s frontage on Exeter Road provides for generous outdoor landscaped dining spaces fronting the proposed restaurants. The new piazza, wide site frontage and improved highway will together deliver a major part of the ‘Grand Garden Walk’.
The scheme will have a 4 storey, 580 space, car park, almost completely hidden by the natural bowl of the site, mixed uses and landscape features. The existing number of public car parking spaces will be re-provided, accessed off Exeter Road. Residential parking will be accessed from the quieter Cranborne Road.
The majority of the mixed uses will be serviced via a service yard in the basement structure within the main body of the site, screened from the public realm and residential amenity spaces. The residential development will also benefit from internal servicing, minimising impact on the external highway network and local area.
