space left for potential road connecting to HS2 station
2) From Toton Lane (North, opposite the end of tram line)
3) From Toton Lane (South):
4) From Southwest Corner- for the nearby small towns

NET & Cycling Access
Bus Routes
Pedestrian Access
Final Details
Gross Retail Area: 63,000 sq m
Cost Estimation: £91.0m
Construction Length: 23 Months
CEEQUAL Assessment
Impact on local competitors 

Economic renewal and revitalisation of the community in which the project is placed
Creation of new construction jobs, skills
Creation of long-term, post-construction and skills enhancements
Local people can sell their agricultural products at the Retail Park market

Noise Pollution

Large area combining everything at one place: groceries, shops, DIY, food and leisure
Contains everyday needs
Renewal and revitalisation of the social fabric of the community in which the project is placed
Meeting point for locals as well as visitors
Enhancement of the communities quality of life
Provide adequately for those with mobility difficulties
Minimize noise impact with sound barriers

Demolition of a farmland along with natural habitats
Air pollution

Green corridors and gardens
Wetland habitat - lake
Sustainable drainage
Rain collection through gutters
Supports walking and cycling
Motivates people to use public transport
Recycling throughout the Retail Park
Local materials to be used for construction reducing embedded energy

Proposal 2:
The East Midlands Retail Park

The Site & Layout
Car Park Design
There are 2760 Parking Spaces, that equates to 31,795m2

Total amount of cycling spaces is 120

Loading bays are 22 spaces for food/non-food retail and 1 space per unit for bars and restaurants

Easy Stress free Parking.
Sustainable Transport & Public Transport
Drainage & Sustainable Features
CEEQUAL Assessment
The Final Details
Gross Retail Area: 50,000 sqm
Cost: £103m
Length of Construction: 30 Months
Proposal 3: Sherwood Forest Retail Park
To Conclude
Sustainable Drainage
Sustainable Urban Drainage
Advantages: Prevents pollution, controls flooding, recharge ground water and replace lost wetlands

“The First Retail Park in the United Kingdom to combine the key characteristics of the High Street, with the appeal and simplicity of an out-of-town Retail Outlet, and providing the experience that all customers are looking for.”

The site boasts over 2,700 Car Parking Spaces.
This is due to the sites location being next to the M1 & the A52.

This will therefore create a huge impact to the local Traffic Infrastructure.
We propose a huge investment that will directly benefit the local residents.

Our Proposal:
The local residents are at the heart of all our decisions. This includes Traffic, and going further than the NET Investment will do.

The proposals include a redesign of Bardills Island, doubling the B6003 Road Capacity and creating a Traffic Network System that will benefit all.

Creating a separate Access Point for Deliveries and Private Cars.

Key Footbridge created to connect the site to the new NET Terminus.

An extension to an existing Bus Route, and Tripling the frequency

3 New Bus Routes connecting to the City Centre, Beeston + Derby, while including local towns like Stapleford & Long Eaton, and the University.

Consideration in place for the potential HS2 Investment.

Sustainable Proposal
A 5km Radius Cycle Network Improvements. We want to link up our site and the NET Terminus.

A 1km Public Right of Way Network Improvements, again connecting to NET.

A Sustainable Scheme, putting Electric and Alternative Powered Cars their own Space next to the Retail Site.

1.Economic impacts and benefits assessments

Potential investment for further development
Revitalise the local economic situation (jobs)

2.Social impacts and benefits assessments

Preventing migration to urban areas
Provides a nice place to socialise and relax
Icon of the region
Primary school sandwiched between high traffic zones

3.Climate change adaptation

Higher rainfall: water canalised to Erewash river and retention pond
Not affected by rise of sea level and temperature change

4.Environmental impacts and benefits assessments

Takes advantage of landscape (reduction of earthwork)
Park provides natural habitats
Just beside HS2 and NET (encourages use of public transport)
Air pollution: high traffic, sewage treatment plant
Noise pollution: vehicles, human activities

5. Project resource strategy

412,000m2 of land available, 50,000m2 for retail area, 70,000m2 for parking.
Mainly wood and bricks for structures, cobbles for pathways, blocks for parking and glulam for footbridge (RC base)
Enough space to store materials on site
Topsoil removed to be used for park area and the rest sold

“A unique project blending a retail development into a pleasant parkland environment with the principles of sustainability at the core of its design.”

Key Features
Smaller distributed buildings not one massive complex
Car parking and access around the periphery
Create a parkland in the centre
Reduce the buildings visual and environmental impact on the site.
Site Layout
One Main Hub building
2 Smaller structures - 4000m2 each
7 individual buildings forming a shopping concourse -1100m2 each
2000 parking spaces

Combines all aspects of the Retail Park Experience, for example: eating/drinking and leisure.

Simplistic Layout, reduced times between shops.

Enjoyable Shopping Experience, minimal obstruction to the customer.

SUDS will run through the car parks splitting them in to sections

Open Channels will run through the pavement area, to form a natural swale around the Retail Park

Swales will flow slowly into wet basins.

We will be using permeable paving to improve the drainage on the car park

Perimeter access road
Central landscaped park area with footpaths
Adventure playground on sloping ground
17000m2 two storey Glulam structure
Faces out onto Park
Outdoor and indoor seating
Anchor store John Lewis, M+S and food outlets.
Cafe in Atrium

Hub Building
Passive solar building:
-Uses suns energy to heat
-South facing glass wall gathers energy
-Environmental Veil regulates temperature
-2 storeys assists even distribution of heat

Green Roof
-Wind Barrier and Insulation
-Absorbs rainwater and reduces runoff
-Blends building into environment

Tram extended into retail park

Access from B6003
B6003 widened to dual carriageway
Roundabout serving NET and retail park
Sloping site with poorly draining silty clay soil
Creation of two SuDS lakes on route of existing stream
Extensive use of cellular paving “grasscrete”
Extensive green roofs
Keep naturally draining green areas

Drainage and Earthworks
Minimise Earthworks required
Utilise the natural rolling land in the park
Use steep westward slope as adventure park
Reuse excavated soil as part of landscaping

Locally sourced aggregate and wood
Small buildings are identical with prefabricated components
In situ use of excavated materials
On site road layout allows early access to entire site
Works access from SE corner to avoid disruption

Environmental impacts
Innovative design minimises impacts
Low through life energy usage
Buildings blend with Environment
Surface runoff minimised through use of SuDS
Incorporation of public transport and walking cycling access
High recyclability of Glulam

Climate change adaptation
Elevated far above flood plain and potential sea level rise
Excess drainage capacity
Passive solar buildings can cope with avg temperature rise

Contribution to sustainable living
Creation of usable green space
Site encourages active lifestyle
Model for future commercial developments

Cost: £65 million
Construction time: 30 months
Gross Retail Area: 32700 sq m
The Need for a Retail Park in this location, along with their iconic features.
