The outline planning application says it covers an area of 35.17 hectares and comprises 650 new homes at an average net density
of 35 dwellings per hectare with a mix of dwellings types from two to five bedroom properties.
The highest rates of population growth of the residential areas lead to a growth of net density
throughout all of the metropolitan rings, but brings stronger growth in the outermost and most dynamic rings.
In deciding on the number of layers, net density
needs to be considered.
Overall is the critical word here: net density
in the residential areas might be high (but, even in Roehampton, only about 60 housing units to the hectare), but because of the way the units were spread out in parkland, in the end densities were very much lower.
And they recognized that our project was designed to look and feel like part of the old neighborhood." Net density
at Classics on the Square is 13.3 units to the acre--roughly twice that of the existing neighborhood.
