Working on behalf of Torfaen Council with Blaenau Gwent Council, Tir Collective were appointed as landscape architects from the concept stage through to completion.  The site is currently a sports field, but the newly equipped 3G sports pitch will provide the local community with new facilities for playing football and rugby in addition to wider landscape improvements within the existing playing fields.

We prepared a comprehensive landscape proposal for the Pre-Application Consultation submission and provided information to the drainage engineer for the Sustainable Drainage Approving Body application.  The site is within a flood zone; therefore we worked with the drainage engineer to propose large-scale drainage features to capture and attenuate water before leaving the site.

The landscape proposal currently includes screen planting at the northern part of the 3G pitch, SuDS, informal paths, native planting, informal footpath routes, boulders and logs for informal play opportunities, an orchard and species-rich grass proposals to enhance biodiversity.
