There is currently very little greenery within the site.  All existing trees will be kept, and new planting will be provided to divide the units and service yards, improving the visual outlook.

The main vehicle route will follow the eastern edge of the site, and there will be a safe route for pedestrians with a main footpath and benches.

The site will be accessed in two places: one to the north by Willow Lane and one to the south by Goat Road. The southern access is currently used as a small car park and amenity area. This includes seating areas with planting creating a quiet space away from the day-to-day noises.

We are also proposing a new pedestrian/cycle access from Drake Road, encouraging healthy and sustainable travel.

The new planting will improve the biodiversity at the site and add seasonal colour and interest throughout the year. 

We have been mindful of the need to protect our closest neighbours. We will increase the existing vegetation on the eastern boundary of the site with new trees and other planting, providing improved screening and outlook for people living along this stretch of Carshalton Road.
