The masterplan aims to integrate a substantial housing development with the existing town of Howden by creating a natural and sympathetic extension of the town’s historic structure. The spatial plan complements and enhances the existing town – sustaining it as a civic focus and centre of economic wellbeing.
In this social context, ‘sustainability’ is not just a response to climate change. The whole development of 630 houses will be within eight minutes walk of the town centre and improved pedestrian connections are proposed as part of a package of benefits for the town.
