Placemaking

Our innovative Placemaking framework sets out eight design principles that define how Redrow achieve sustainable development on all of our sites.

Designing sustainable communities

Our eight design principles are:

Connecting with local communities and stakeholders at an early stage to identify local concerns that may inform the development proposals.

First impressions count; creating inviting, memorable entrances and building beautiful, distinctive homes.

Creating locally tailored, interconnected community infrastructure, providing opportunities for people to interact and socialise.

Working to value and design around what is important locally, dovetailing developments to sensitively fit into the area.

Creating new or enhancing existing wildlife habitats and better connecting people to them through thoughtful design of public spaces.

Recognising the street as an essential part of creating safe, attractive and friendly places to live, where neighbours can meet each other.

Creating new or improved connections between developments and the existing community by stitching streets and routes into the neighbourhood.

Sustainable and socially cohesive communities are formed when there is a diverse mix of housing types and tenures.
