TEP is delighted to be working with Gloucester City Homes to assist them in the delivery of strong, sustainable communities at their Matson and Podsmead housing estates in Gloucester. As part of the Tibbalds Masterplanning team, TEP will be providing expertise in public realm, open space and management on these two sites which are in need of large scale regeneration and investment. Through the Masterplanning process our aim is to reverse the economic, social and physical decline that these areas have been suffering over many years, with new high quality housing and infrastructure. Together with a strong landscape framework with multi-functional green spaces we will be able to establish a special identity for the place and encourage social cohesion and improve health and wellbeing. Over the next few months we will be working closely with Tibbalds, undertaking site survey and analysis, developing and testing options, facilitating consultation workshops and preparing a masterplan report supported by design guidance and policy requirements. The final project output will be a Masterplan and draft SPD in spring 2018.
