Key to the design of any sizeable new community is an appropriate mix of housing and supporting amenities to create opportunities for the residents, and to create of a sense of place and identity that would make the community a desirable place in which to live.
The Greendykes proposal combines a range of housing types and new facilities within a framework that draws upon the character of the local Carse landscape, and relates to the surrounding areas and landmarks to create a new community with a clear sense of place and belonging within the Stirling area. The original settlements of Lower Greenyards, Hartmailing and Newmills are used to define the extents of a central focus for the new community; a main street and central ‘square’ containing public facilities and opening up to spectacular views of Stirling Castle, and bounded on the west side by a new business area, and to the east by a new community school.
