A contemporary village in the London Metropolitan Green Belt
Broadway Malyan was appointed by a major national developer to prepare a masterplan for a modern and sustainable new lifestyle settlement in a sensitive countryside location.
Situated in Surrey, to the south west of London and in close proximity to Heathrow Airport and the main motorway and rail network, the site comprises a disused Government military research and evaluation centre.
It is currently a fascinating mix of undulating woodland, flat open areas and historic buildings, surrounded by wonderful, ecologically rich countryside.
The development vision was to bring together the site’s wonderful assets with the attributes that make living in existing Surrey villages so special.
It also sought to combine these with current consumer demands: light and airy open-plan housing; green multi-functional spaces; sports facilities; food and beverages; and good transportation links, to create a 21st century version of the traditional Surrey village.
“Longcross Village has the potential to create a wonderful living and working environment in a stunning location with easy access to central London.”
