CJCT’s initial involvement in Festival Gardens was to develop a masterplan based on an apartment-led mix of uses. Detailed consultation was undertaken with the Local Authority and CABE to ensure the project was of exemplar quality resulting in planning approval for approximately 1400 apartments which was subsequently ratified at Public Enquiry.
Recent changes in the development climate lead to a re-appraisal of the scheme. CJCT have undertaken initial work to explore concepts and test alternative quantities and mixes of use. This helps question how the development might move forward and establishing a new development brief.
