We were commissioned by the University of Warwick to review the University’s development plan, advise on the University’s expansion and design specific projects.
MJP’s Development Plan received Outline Planning Approval in 2008 and includes provision for 171,000sqm new development spread across the campus, half of which is in the Warwickshire Green Belt. The process involved considerable consultation within the University and with stakeholder, members of the public and three local authorities. MJP continue to work with the University on the implementation of the Development Plan and we have recently produced a short film which provides a vivid presentation and explanation of the University’s aspirations for the long term development of the campus.
The development plan provides a framework for the University estate to develop as an integrated whole and addresses issues including: locations for buildings, routes and landscapes; the need to create a development sensitive to the fact that the campus includes significant amounts of green belt; provision of a framework allowing the expansion to be phased; statutory planning requirements; creating a sense of place and a safe environment; promoting sustainable development; and transportation and accessibility.
Specific projects completed by MJP include the refurbishment of University House to create a student resource centre, and the design of a new plaza and landscape integrating the building into the campus.
