Design evolution to respond to feedback
The original (still valid) planning consent for Cherry Orchard Gardens allowed for the removal of the trees on the corner of Oval Road. However, during early
consultation with the community, the Council’s Place Review Panel, and the Planning Committee, there were repeated requests to retain the existing London
Plane trees at the corner of the site.
To keep as many trees as possible, the proposed building has been remodelled, reversing the direction of the curve to move around the eastern side
of the trees.
With the revised building form, a simpler profile has been proposed, acting more as a backdrop to the trees.
