Hayes, Hillingdon

studio REAL has been commissioned by Hillingdon Council to undertake an urban design assessment of a redevelopment area in Hayes, Hillingdon. The commission followed on from a talk by studio REAL on the opportunities to improve our towns and cities that were lost in the planning process by development teams, including architects, developers and development control officers, being too focussed, too soon on the red-line application area. The talk stated that a relative short and simple urban design study early in the development process can often identify opportunities to achieve significant benefits to the wider community, as well as raise quality and value of the redevelopment site itself. The team will report back to the Council with their finding within three weeks.
