Transport planners and engineers JMP is carrying out detailed design of road and drainage infrastructure for a “walkable neighbourhood” development in Ayrshire being undertaken by The Prince of Wales.
Joint developers Hopes Homes (Scotland) and Zero C Holdings have appointed JMP to the groundbreaking Knockroon development on the Dumfries Estate near Cumnock where planning permission for the first phase has now been granted by East Ayrshire Council.
The development is being taken forward by a subsidiary of the Prince’s Charities Foundation, working with Hope Homes and Zero C, and will act as a catalyst for The Prince’s vision for heritage-led regeneration in the area. The Masterplan for the site was drawn up by the Prince’s Foundation for the Built Environment after extensive community consultation and follows the principles used by The Prince of Wales for his successful development at Poundbury in Dorset.
In the first phase will be 87 homes, 12 work units, four commercial buildings and a local shop. The total development, which will cover 0.28km2, will eventually accommodate around 600 homes.
