The masterplan development sets out a distinctive framework for the evolution of a 21st Century Garden suburb on the site of the former Metropolitan Police facility called the Peel Centre, Colindale. The vision is to create large areas of centralised, green amenity space as the public realm, around which are placed urban quarters. Two new, large 4 hectare parks are suggested to cover almost one fifth of the precinct. The residential areas are of differing densities, characters and offer different market and affordable products. There will be natural variety across the site based around the public realm.
The masterplan introduces four areas: Peel Square, Peel Park, Peel Gardens and Peel Green. Peel Square is a new mixed use neighbourhood centre including retail units, 500 sqm of local supermarket, doctors surgery, primary school, community uses and commercial space. Mansion blocks will address Peel Park establishing prime views that will maximise residential values whilst Peel Gardens is a more naturalistic park and village pond and Peel Green is open court housing around the new sports pitches. It is then vital to establish a new High Street which will facilitate generous pedestrian movement, simultaneously streets will feature some on street parking, which adds activity at street level and allows for drop offs, deliveries and visitors.
