1. The Team was commissioned to provide Landscape Design and Masterplanning services for the former MG Rover car plant in Birmingham. At the heart of this 140ha masterplan the reopened River Rea is surrounded by a necklace of new parks. Longbridge West Park is an ecological park which provides extensive passive recreation facilities. A network of new cycle and pedestrian routes including a new section of the National Cycle Network links the park to the surrounding community. Overlooking the reopened River Rea a series of sculptural earth terraces forms a series of informal amphitheatres. Bold drifts of native tree and shrub planting enhance the biodiversity of the site and create a strong sense of seasonal change.
