At the heart of this development are 33 acres of landscaped parkland connected by walkways, cycle routes and nature trails.

West Park Village is a bespoke Architect designed mixed-use building of the highest quality. The design inspiration is based on a contemporary interpretation of early English Arts and Crafts architecture.

Natural stone walls and buttresses contrast with vibrant red facing bricks complimented by projecting copper roof overhangs making a striking visual statement at the centre of the Community Village.

The village square is finished in high quality natural slate and clay paving with stone and corten steel edgings.

An imaginative Arts Strategy has been created by Bill Herbert and incorporates text work related to three of the tree species used within West Park – The Maple, Alder and Birch. The whole scheme is illuminated at night by a colourful high quality lighting scheme.

The ground floor retail units comprise a Co-op Convenience Store, Rowlands Pharmacy, Dental Surgery, Hair and Beauty Salon and a Continental Café.
