The Heathlands scheme won the Science, Management and Stewardship award for 2017. Judges commented “this exciting project shows how collaborative working in an ecologically-led project can achieve development in close proximity to an SAC”.
TEP’s work with Redrow Homes at the Heathlands development in Buckley was Highly Commended in the Best Biodiversity Enhancement category. The scheme saw the regeneration of a derelict and unsafe claypit and brickworks for 300 new homes, alongside generous public open space and a 30ha nature reserve. The project took ten years from planning application to completion and the populations of people and newts have grown alongside each other! Read more.

Highly Commended: Strategic Landscape Planning Category
Newlands is a 20-year community woodland regeneration scheme in north west England. Led by the Forestry Commission (FC), it has converted 540ha of neglected land into valuable green space. TEP researched and mapped the evidence on socio-economic and environmental deprivation which enabled the FC to secure £59m government funding. Judges commented that “the robust evidence-based methodology has enabled resources to be focussed with great effect”
River Tawe Green Infrastructure Strategy
TEP’s “FutureVision” student, Lee Miles, presented concept designs for the Tawe corridor which stretches 4.5km north from Swansea city centre and includes several large brownfield sites identified for major mixed-use regeneration. TEP prepared a green infrastructure (GI) strategy which included a green space masterplan and proposed GI standards for use in development control. Lee’s design concepts were derived from TEP’s strategy. Judges commented that “the submission included a thorough analysis with impressive proposals for green infrastructure and green housing.”
