Schoolhill Masterplan
Portlethen

 

A residential masterplan was prepared for the 150ha site at Schoolhill Phase 2 on behalf of Stewart Milne Homes. As part of the process they were keen to take a fresh approach to the public consultation involved.

 

Keppie along with other key members of the project team were heavily involved with the preparation, co-ordination and implementation of innovative community consultation events throughout the design development period. Workshops were intended to be relaxed yet informative and inspiring where the team sought to encourage people to interact and share their views. All members of the community were engaged in this process, from school children to more senior members of society and positive feedback in relation to the methods of consultation were received at all stages of the process. Workshop events covered topics including place making, zoning, street toolkits and town centre shape and design. The town centre workshop allowed participants to review different types of town centres, discuss these with the design team and then choose their preferred layout.
