A more welcoming and inclusive environment

We asked the Cambridge-based landscape architects, Robert Myers Associates, to develop a landscape and public realm strategy that creates a variety of new spaces that cater for local residents and workers, as well as people that will pass through every day.

Central to our plans is the creation of Chesterton Square. As you can see from the plan, the square will feature new tree planting, spill out café spaces, water features and a variety of seating areas. We hope that this public space will be used in all sorts of ways by a wide range of people.

Swale Street will be a new tree-lined pedestrian route to the railway station, with pocket parks, low level planting, bridge crossings over a vegetated open water channel (swale) and carefully placed street furniture.

A further open space will be created at the top of Milton Avenue. The Gateway will include new tree planting, a series of rain gardens, invertebrate rich planting, and new seating.
