Great Western Park

Allen Pyke have worked on this urban extension in Didcot, Oxfordshire, since 2008. The design and implementation of public open space, including SuDS, are at the heart of this 3300+ residential development and is a major influence on the layout of built-up areas. The project also includes two primary schools, a secondary and college, retail centre with supermarket and pub, and large sports pitch area.

Public consultation is mandatory throughout the design development process, with stakeholder workshops, exhibitions and presentations regularly held to engage with  new and existing user groups.

Allen Pyke work closely with project engineers to develop of site-wide SuDS strategy for the development. The site featured as an exemplar case study at the 2012 National SuDS Conference ‘Getting on with SuDS’, and has hosted a BOB:MK event.
