The site covers nearly 2,250 acres, located between the Kennet and Avon Canal and the M4; it is a degraded landscape resulting from intensive mineral extraction. As a member of the consultants team, PLACE contributed to a masterplan for PruPIM to develop a fifth of the site to create 7,500 homes and supporting infrastructure, leisure and community facilities.

The practice also provided advice on the retention of the existing landscape, public rights of way, creating a new land/water interface, establishing a nature park and on future sustainability issues. PLACE was also commissioned to prepare the environmental statement, the landscape and visual impact assessment (LVIA), and the recreation impact assessment for the proposed development.
