The vision for Stainsby is a sustainable, mixed, and balanced community set in an outstanding and engaging landscape. This includes the creation of a new public country park.
The character of the development will be defined by the landscape setting and the importance of nature. It will enhance and extend existing habitats, while also creating a wide range of new habitats for the benefit of people and wildlife. It will offer a net gain in biodiversity, climate change resilience, and ecosystem services to the wider environment.
The Stainsby country park and masterplan design code sets the design standards for a country park alongside new community facilities, sports facilities, and play areas, as well as hundreds of new homes. The design code was adopted on 7 June 2022.
