Masterplan, Village Expansion, Brookfield

N5 worked with Ryden to appraise and prepare a masterplan for redevelopment of the former Merchiston Hospital site for a housing led extension of Brookfield.

Options for up to 200 new homes were proposed that

  • retained existing woodland and community open space
  • echoed the periodic growth and plot density of Brookfield
  • is based on the principles of ‘Designing for Streets’ with enhanced permeability, pedestrians routes, distributed green space and a central village green
  • diversity of housing type within each phase
