Northlake, Lakeside Basin, Thurrock


CSA Environmental is delighted to be part of the project team for Northlake in Thurrock, a mixed-use development of up to 2,500 dwellings, a primary school, community facilities, public realm works, environmental improvements and supporting infrastructure. CSA’s Landscape Planning team worked closely with the project team to produce the Landscape and Visual chapter of the Environmental Statement. We also worked alongside the Landscape Officer of Thurrock Borough Council to ensure that key viewpoints and locations of the CGIs were agreed before the application was submitted.

A landscape-led approach underpinned the development, which was designed by Studio Egret West. Landscape character areas were identified throughout the site to divide it into local communities and provide a sense of place, with the design of each area responding to its respective character area.

The application was validated by Thurrock Borough Council in November 2018 and we eagerly await their decision.
