The practice has been commissioned by Odyssey Group Holdings Limited to develop proposals for the redevelopment of the Odyssey Health and Racquets Site in Stevenage. The site is in Green Belt and is in need of inward investment to secure its long-term future as an important asset within the local community. A master plan exercise is underway which will establish proposals for new residential accommodation, a crèche as well as securing the future viability and sustainability of the Health Club Facilities.
A careful appreciation of the impact on the wider landscape setting and the impact on the local highways network is required to support any proposal which will be brought forward within the planning application. An experienced multi-disciplinary design team has been established with Forge Design Studio taking the lead design consultant role. Work is well underway and a planning application is programmed for Easter 2015.
