Aura, Great Kneighton


Working for Countryside Properties, BBUK have designed the landscape and public realm areas relating to the construction of 284 new homes to the south of Cambridge. 


The streets and public spaces incorporate SUDs features such as rills, rain gardens and an attenuation pond.  In addition to slowing rain water run off rates, these help to calm the traffic, contribute towards the play strategy and provide linear street side plantings throughout the site.


A formal pocket park and community orchard sit in the centre of the site, whilst a more natural linear park runs down the western edge, with an existing hedgerow at its heart.
