HTA win Contribution to Place Award in The Pineapple Awards
This award recognises projects which create a neighbourhood, large or small and that thrives, contributes to urban life and encourages people to dwell, live, work, connect, learn or play.
HTA’s Landscape team worked across multiple phases of Berkeley Homes’ Kidbrooke Village, delivering C 5000 new homes from planning to delivery on site, including the redesign of the 8ha Cator Park in collaboration with the London Wildlife Trust.
HTA responded to the brief with a landscape led vision for Cator Park and the wider Kidbrooke Village, proposing a mosaic of varied habitat, topography and biophilic spaces including lakes, WSUD wetlands, meadows, open amenity and wild spaces. The vision returns nature to the city and challenges the perception that urban brownfield development cannot contribute to the wider ecological and biodiversity network whilst creating successful spaces for the community. This new park at the centre of the development will offer a legacy for the local community & London that will bring people together and form a sense of identity.
