Ensleigh North MOD, Bath World Heritage City
Nicholas Pearson Associates was appointed to provide landscape, ecological and environmental coordination services for the redevelopment of the redundant Ensleigh North MOD base to residential use.
The site is located within the Bath World Heritage City and adjacent to the Cotswold AONB and a Conservation Area.
The design provides a sustainable and high quality residential development that integrates with the landscape and avoids significant visual impacts from city viewpoints. This was especially important given the historically sensitive elevated rural location on a major route into the city.
Building heights, dwelling mixes, building materials and areas of public open space were all considered carefully throughout the design and assessment process and in consultation with the council to meet this objective and gain planning permission.
