We were commissioned to renew the layout of the forecourt of the Grade I listed Main House designed by architect Stiff Leadbetter within the Capability Brown designed Grade II* listed landscape, to reduce the dominance of vehicles, to remove parking and ease pedestrian movement.

Developments at the campus have resulted in an increase in pedestrian and vehicular activity on the forecourt area. This, in combination with the adjacent bus hub for the university, was recognised as a safety risk to users and an inappropriate setting for Main House.

The aim of the scheme was to organise vehicle movement, improve pedestrian movement and safety, including targeted street lighting enhancements and a new pedestrian crossing to improve the appearance of the forecourt. The lighting design was informed by a suite of bat surveys and careful lux plot testing.

We have been retained by the University since 1993 to provide professional advice on matters relating to Landscape, Heritage Environment, Ecology and Environmental Planning. We have been involved in all major developments undertaken by the University in this period.
