ST ALBANS PRE PLANNING
Located on the rural-urban fringe outside St Albans on the former site of the Burston garden centre, this new retirement village will provide high quality, modern accommodation for later living. The development contains a clubhouse with communal amenities overlooking a village green, surrounded by care bungalows and 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments.
The masterplan has been landscape and heritage led with the groups of buildings arranged around a series of distinctive green spaces that link the buildings physically and visually to each other and the wider context whilst retaining views to and from the Grade II* listed Burston Manor on the site’s north-western border and the adjacent woodlands to the south east. The landscape has been developed to provide a range of different character areas with a variety of external spaces for residents to enjoy.
