Green space and playground plans for Orchard Grove, a development complex to be built in Comeytrowe, have now been submitted.
The park-garden will include a 400 m² playground with benches and paths for pedestrians and cyclists.
The park will be in the first area to be developed – the western quarter. But there will also be a number of other small “pocket parks”, and larger parks, in Orchard Grove.
Homebuilders Taylor Wimpey and Vistry Group (which includes Bovis Homes and Linden Homes) are responsible for building this community of gardens.

Sue Scholfield, Vistry Group and Orchard Grove Consortium, said: “This is a very exciting step in the creation of Orchard Grove, and we are committed to delivering on our green promise early in its development.
“Outdoor spaces will be an important part of the First Quarter, providing a safe and accessible space for families to have fun and play, while encouraging children to explore the great outdoors.
“Our commitment to creating a green and sustainable community is at the heart of our shared vision, with the Garden Park to be the first of many accessible green spaces in Orchard Grove.
“Located near homes, residents can use these ‘pocket parks’ for everything from a neighborhood meeting to a family picnic, or simply as a place to relax and enjoy their surroundings.
“We are not only providing new homes, but also a sustainable and green community that has been created with the local environment as a source of inspiration.
“With new high quality homes, facilities, shared amenities and an abundance of outdoor space, Orchard Grove will truly be a new community with a green difference.”
Vistry Group is also working on the project in partnership with the South West Housing Association, LiveWest.
Glynnis Poole, Technical Director of Planning and Sustainability for LiveWest, said: “We put sustainability at the heart of everything we do and are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our operations to create a clean future. and sustainable for our customers.
“We welcome these plans for a new park and play area in Comeytrowe that will promote community spirit and a sense of well-being for families. ”
