Update February 2010 - Bishop’s Palace, Halling
A landscape architect has been working on designs for the Bishop’s Palace
site in the centre of Halling, and initial consultation with statutory bodies and
the landowner has been completed. Now the residents of Halling can view
and comment on the draft proposals, and those comments will help to take
the design forward to an agreed masterplan.
The following drawings will be on display:
Drawing 1 – Opportunities & Constraints
Analyses the site to define positive and negative features - what constraints
affect the design, and what opportunities can be exploited in the design.
Drawing 2 – Sketch Design
Illustrates the basic principles of the design for the site, developed from the
information on Drawing 1.
Drawing 3 – Indicative Hard and Soft Landscape Treatment
Adds to Drawing 2, by indicating the kind of materials and planting envisioned
for the site.
If you would like to make any comments, please contact the landscape
The drawings are on display in the foyer of Halling Community Centre
until Saturday 27th February, and you will be able to discuss the project with
Valley of Visions staff and the landscape architect between 9am and 11.30am
on that Saturday.
