A regeneration master plan to evaluate the consolidation and relocation of a waste transfer station to release land for residential development, enhance amenity and improve the environmental and physical fabric of this Norwood locality. Various dissipated site uses, access and service issues were analyzed and options for site consolidation and land-use efficiencies proposed in consultation with the local community.
A range of sustainable high density low rise residential developments and infill with associated mixed use and amenity improvements where considered. These exploited the hillside slope abutting Norwood Cemetery to the west and ranged up to 176 dwellings @ 580ha rooms ha with 150% parking with a preponderance of family dwellings for 6 or 4 people. A children’s nursery, local shopping and workshops along with recreation area, and kick about space form part of the development. The existing Local Authority waste transfer station is reconfigured and successfully relocated with environmental and acoustic buffering. A proposed pedestrian route through Norwood Cemetery is included connecting this isolated locality with the better public transport facilities available in central Norwood to the west.
