Phasing Phase 2 (2015 – 2019) Medium term deliverables Phase 2 in the Draft Masterplan is linked to the proposed MOD withdrawal in 2015 when the majority of MOD land is released. The longer timescale will allow the planning and delivery of projects which are generally more complex, requiring more resources to obtain consents, design and construct and more detailed planning. These elements are fundamental to the overall success of the Green Infrastructure Strategy as it includes the majority of the green infrastructure associated with the proposed new development.
Green Infrastructure Strategy
