   Church and the Plough Inn public house.

•  Minimal road layout pattern with the emphasis on pedestrian routes and movement.
•  Connection to existing infrastructure, public transport, services, school.
•  Community facilities designed in a cluster around the village green.
•  Retail units along main pedestrian and vehicular route for maximum exposure.

•  Buildings designed with a contemporary feel which responds to context, creating an
   attractive environment with a strong local identity.
•  Buildings designed to reflect the surrounding urban grain in height and footprint.
•  High quality design and materials.
•  Mix of tenures.
•  Views and glimpses of church between buildings and along streets maintained.
•  Development to embrace sustainable design and construction practice.
