Alconbury Weald Phase One

Alconbury Weald Housing Development

Alconbury Weald is Britain's largest housing development. The new community is being built on an old, cold-war RAF base and has a perimeter of 18km. Alconbury Weald will deliver nearly 7,000 homes. The scheme costs £1.5billion and is hailed as an urban extension because it is larger than a garden village but smaller than a new town. It will include a Government-backed enterprise zone, two primary schools, a secondary school, a health centre, 700 acres of green space and a cricket pitch. The scale of the project warrants multiple play areas located across the new community.

Bradley Murphy Design created the first of many play areas. The result highlights how important quality green spaces are. Bradley Murphy Design wanted to continue the character of the housing development through to the play area. As a result, we supplied material from our FHS range which offers the highest quality robinia timbers in the market. Furthermore, this robust product will require minimal maintenance works and will withstand unwanted behaviour.

The playground caters to children of all ages therefore encouraging individuals to play with one another regardless their stage of development. In addition, the sand allows parents to explore with their toddlers without obstructing the children on the structure.
