Wood Green,Castleford

Client: Wakefield District Housing

Landscape Architects: Groundwork, Wakefield

Value: £300,000

Contract Period: 8 weeks

Wood Green, Castleford was a ground breaking scheme for Wakefield District Housing. It involved Groundwork, Wakefield in consultations with residents to produce a design with components to suit all ages.

Garden boundaries were provided as a priority to provide security for properties.
The large and characterless central space was developed to provide amenities for all members of the community, with a residents garden containing a pergola, seating, bird bath and planting.
Play features were also incorporated to suit all ages from toddlers to teenagers, all overlooked by surrounding dwellings and therefore being self-policing.
