The scheme involved six apartment blocks set around a formal boulevard and square. The blocks would range in height from two to four storeys with hipped roofs. The entrance to the site would be framed by two three-storey blocks and a tree-lined boulevard would connect to a central area of open space.
The inspector noted that the density was high at 87 dwellings per hectare. However, he judged that the formal streetscape proposed would reflect the garden city's characteristic design approach. The scheme would provide a good residential environment and strike the right balance between creating a quality internal environment and responding to the local context, he ruled.
