A redundant former stone quarry in a spectacular setting with a 63m change in level from north to south. The challenge has been to create a new village which celebrates its local distinctiveness; maximises value; meets all sustainability criteria and is deliverable in phases. Aspirational exemplars included Mediterranean hill towns and local Yorkshire stone villages. The scheme aims to link existing villages across Leeds’ outer ring road, with a new bus route planned through 485 new homes and 250,000ft² of mixed employment and community uses.
