PERTH WEST CHARRETTE
Client: Ironside Farrar for Perth & Kinross Council
Programme: Current Project
Perth West has been identified through the Local Development Plan (LDP) as a potential site for residential expansion. The primary purpose of this study was to support the Council LDP, and explore further consideration of the site for mixed use development comprising some 3000+ houses, community spaces and 25ha of employment land.
The Masterplan Framework design and charrette engagement process took place in spring 2015. SSM supported the planning team taking part in the two charrette events, providing urban design expertise and developing the strategy for the design of the streets and a local neighbourhood centre.
A series of presentations of comparative neighbourhoods and precedents were provided. Drawings were produced during the Charrette event to explain and explore the design solutions with local stakeholders and community representatives.
The Masterplan sets out the following:
- Adopted and emerging planning context
- Overview of Site Analysis.
- Planning and design policy context and associated urban design principles.
- Masterplan Framework.
The framework will define parameters and guide further detailed master planning stages to ensure that Perth West is a place that will successfully grow and integrate with the wider Perth community.
