Scotts Park is conveniently located within easy reach of existing infrastructure and in a highly sustainable location. Bordered by trainlines and four accessible train stations to the west, as well as the M1 and A41 to the north, the site is also well served by bus routes and surrounding cycle and pedestrian routes.
The new sustainable community aspires to achieve the highest levels of accreditation, an exemplar ‘net-zero’ eco community. The housing will meet the Home Quality Mark (HQM) standards, to a minimum of a 4-star rating, which reflects the highest standards of quality, running costs, health and well-being, and environmental impact. The Community Centre will target BREEAM Excellent with aspirations for an Outstanding rating to demonstrate its sustainable performance.
The development plans include the establishment of a Scotts Park Settlement Trust, dedicated to the long-term stewardship for the settlement. Scotts Park, named after the protected Scotts Wood, will be a desirable place where people will choose to live and create a cohesive, successful community, a truly sustainable destination.
