Made in MILTON

An eco-junction to a compact and sustainable urban village

Preface

This booklet showcase an accumulation of work starting from Semester One, and is the final stage of a 3-part process of the master planning project sited in Milton. The year-long course which focuses on developing design visions for the regeneration of Milton is structured in 6 phases that runs over two semesters. In the Analysis stage, students were split into 5 Analysis groups where the pair of us focus on Multiple Centrality Assessment (MCA) - a tool to measure the complicated road network based on different types of centrality and output the results graphically. In a later stage, each analysis group were split and regrouped to form Strategy Groups (taking advantages from the knowledge gathered from each group member from their respective Analysis Group) to develop on a strategic masterplan. At this stage of the process, students are free to work either in groups or individually. Lectures from Jacob Dribble on Local Urban Code, David Rudlin on Urban sprawl, Prof. Sergio Porta on Road Calming were given throughout to provide us the framework and set the foundation for us to work on our chosen masterplan site in a more focussed and detailed manner, guided in parallel by Ombretta Romice’s and Sergio Porta’s valuable input throughout all tutorial sessions.

2050 Milton Regeneration Masterplan

An eco-junction to a compact and sustainable urban village


Made in MILTON

An eco-junction to a compact and sustainable urban village

Site Location Milton lays 2.5 miles Northwards off on the urban fringe of Greater Glasgow. It is an area arose from the late 1940s as part of a post-war construction programme.

Milton Glasgow’s Most Northerly Scheme 1954

The lack of top down planning policies due to the concentric focus on the city development has further pushed Milton onto the periphery, resulting in its struggles today to cope with the growing needs a town as big as Milton requires in every aspects. This is underscored by its high percentage of people living within 500m of vacant or derelict land; high level of unemployment rate; social and health issues as well as poor quality housing stocks. Nonetheless, bottom up initiatives have sprung from the local community to alleviate the dilemma left by the voided development.

Vision Statement The project is set against the backdrop of the industrial estate of Milton- Balmore Industrial Estate due to its inherent potentials covering 22 acres of land such as its proximity to the Forth and Clyde canal and Possil Marsh Natural Reserve; vast areas of derelict land and its prospective of offering more job opportunities to the locals which are all currently underlooked. The overarching objective is to open up the current industrial area through a strategic approach of connecting dead end streets into its wider road network. We believe it is only when road connectivity and one’s accessibility to the site are improved, the following visions and aims to drive Milton can be realised and achieved.

10

2050 Milton Regeneration Masterplan

An eco-junction to a compact and sustainable urban village

The vision focuses on four main aspects: 1. Stitch Milton with the canal communities along the Forth and Clyde Canal; 2. Improve Milton’s connectivity with the wider road network by linking Liddesdale Road to A879 and A803; 3. Create an integrated green network that complements to the existing character of the area; and 4. Implement an innovative approach to recycling by-products from the existing industrial activities. With that, the masterplan aims to achieve the following: - To restore the canal’s industrial importance as a vital trade and transport links - To create a liveable environment and walkable neighbourhood. Underlying that is to transform

car dominated streets into pedestrian friendly shared spaces. - To provide new physical pedestrian and cycling route that joins to the wider transport network - To introduce diversity and characters in tenure and housing type - To develop a productive urban landscape and its continuity to the wider green network - To open up access to natural reserve (Possil Marsh) and develop environmental education opportunities along the Forth and Clyde Canal - To provide a sustainable drainage infrastructure on new development across the area - To provide a strategic and sustainable approach on recycling industrial by-products

Planning context In preparing the Masterplan, regard has been made to the following planning guidance: - City Plan 2 (CP2) - Forth and Clyde Canal Action Plan (FCCAP) - Open Space Strategy (OSS) - Local Urban Code - Towards an Urban Renaissance

Key findings from Analysis stage The MCA tool analyses the road network based on three centralities- 1. Betweenness Centrality which measures the amount of times a path act as a through route; 2. Closeness Centrality which measures the amount of connections a segment of path may have within a set distance; and 3. Straightness Centrality which measures the directness of a place. The results are graphically represented using a colour ramp, where red represents the most central streets and blue the least. The MCA analysis for Milton has helped to explain Milton’s convoluted and the lack of a well-connected road network that have caused various issues as it is facing today. By investigating three possible scenarios, we have shown that changes to the road network can result in a significant redistribution of the centrality of the area’s street network that later set the basis for the strategy stage. The proposals are:

Betweenness Centrality

1. To reconnect Liddesdale Road to the urban main road; 2. To densify the street network on south Milton; 3. To knit together East Milton and Bishopbriggs. Closeness Centrality “Do I need to pass through this street to get to other places?” Betweenness Centrality

Closeness Centrality

“How many places can I get to within a 5min walk of this street? 10mins? 15mins?”

“Is this street a direct route to other places? Straightness Centrality

Key findings from Strategy stage

SWOT Analysis- Strength and Opportunities

SWOT Analysis- Threats and weaknesses

A thorough understanding on all aspects of Milton’s current form and its relations to its surroundings have effectively gauge successes, failures, strengths and weaknesses that create snapshots of information about its current nodes, densities, road hierarchy and land uses. To recapitulate the key findings from each group in this stage, it is evident that Milton’s lack of a focal point is the main cause for its disjointed nodal system; and that its low density over a vast amount of derelict land has made public transport link to the area not viable. Meanwhile, Milton’s convoluted road network has effectively fragmented zones such as Balmore Industrial Area. From this we have formulated four areas of action where our reimagined Balmore Industrial Area will act as the catalyst and gateway to the community to a new and reinvigorated Milton. 1. Improved links to global node by Putting Milton on the map; 2. Opening up of Balmore Industrial Area and diversifying land use through Reinstating Liddesdale Road to the urban main road; 3. Sustainable use on derelict land for food production through an Integrated Green Network; 4. Reducing the development’s environmental impact on site by Keeping everything in the loop.

Vision and goal Urban Scale

Putting Milton on the map At an urban scale, the proximity of west Milton to Forth and Clyde Canal has placed Milton in a good light as Glasgow City Plan 2 identifies Glasgow North as a ‘Key Regeneration Area’ within which the canal forms a central spine. In the Forth and Clyde Canal Action Plan, it has actively included Balmore Industrial Area as well as Possil Marsh Wildlife Reserve in its planning approach with the aim to thread and reinvigorate all canal communities through strategic regeneration program that adopts a strong ‘place-making’ approach to transform the canal into a vibrant local and city destination. Building on the success on the redevelopment on Sighthill Transformational Regeneration Area and Maryhill Locks, this Made in Milton regeneration masterplan has the opportunities to unlock its inherent potentials and be transformed into a vibrant community hub at the district level.

The Canal Corridor in context. Image courtesy of Glasgow Canal Regeneration Partnership.

This can be achieved by establishing a few access points to Possil Marsh and improving on its current public realm such as the addition of two new footbridges over the canal, a paved pedestrain path and clear cycling route, as well as providing environmental education on the diverse natural habitat in Possil Marsh. These would all contribute to increasing the use of the canal environment and generating activity, which is a key strand of the regeneration approach.

Reinstating Liddesdale Road

Reading in parallel with City Plan 2, the designation of Balmore Industrial Area falls under DEV3: Industrial and Business, which recognises it as a locus for industrial and business activity within Greater Glasgow. Thus on a local scale, with Balmore Industrial Area identified as the key catalyst for Milton’s 2050 regeneration program, 672000 the process of redevelopment to be materialized within this area has to be “retained primarily for uses that fall within Use Classes 4 ‘Business’, 5 ‘General Industrial’ and 6 ‘Storage or Distribution’ of the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) (Scotland) Order 1997.” 673000

Extract from Policy Justification on non-industrial or nonbusiness uses in industrial and business areas, City Plan 2, page 174. “This policy supports the Plan’s Development Strategy to retain the attractiveness of policy DEV 3 areas for industrial and business use (see Part 2, JOBS, Industrial/Business Development, paragraph 4.14). Areas covered by a policy DEV 3 designation will be retained primarily for uses that fall within Use Classes 4 ‘Business’, 5 ‘General Industrial’ and 6 ‘Storage or Distribution’ of the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes)(Scotland) Order 1997. This seeks to ensure that the City’s industrial and business areas continue to offer opportunities for both relocation and incoming businesses.

Again, to recap earlier findings from the MCA analysis, Liddesdale Road’s link to A879 and A803 is vital in placing Milton in a central location that could help to contribute positive delivery of the aforementioned visions.

Vision and goal

Neighbourhood Scale

Integrated Green Network

ETL

On a neighbourhood scale, the proposal wishes to inform its ecological network through a sustainable use on derelict land for food production while at the same time keeping a balance on enhancing its current industrial state as well as the delivery of vibrant mixed use developments. According to Glasgow’s Open Space Strategy, where Milton is tiled 6, the majority of the industrial zone is not confined to the retention of public and private green/open space as opposed to areas identified as Green Corridor and Amenity Greenspace- Housing. 62.6m

Shaft

Thus Glasgow’s Open Space Strategy is referred to from time to time in the design of urban food production which takes the central stage of the development to create educational opportunities around food growing and environmental issues that could benefit the local communities.

SHIEL DAIG ROAD

There are three types of allotment proposed in Milton, and each works in a different way: 1. Statutory allotments: Council-owned allotments which cannot be sold on or used for other purposes without the consent of the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. 2. Temporary allotments: Despite the council’s ownership, these allotments are not protected from disposal and can be sold, making them less secure than their statutory counterparts. 3. Privately owned land: No association with the council and is in full control of the landowner which can be rented out as allotments.

An eco-junction to a compact and sustainable urban village

The Milton Model

The Programme

Keeping everything in the loop

The current population of around 6.8 billion people is expected to grow to just over 9 billion by 2050, demanding not only more housings but also more lands to grow enough food to feed the population. For Milton to achieve its goal by 2050, its dilemmas i.e. far off food supply and poor access to healthy food as currently portrayed in the town has to be addressed first and foremost. The densified industrial area which proposes to bring in approximately 4,000 residents see huge potentials on reusing and recycling the by-products of its existing industry- Allied Bakery where beers are produced using the ‘recycled’ bread ends and crops are grown using the ‘recycled’ hops from the brewing process. A thorough study on the life circle of the production of a consumer product through to the end process and its closed loop system encourage an inter-dependant relationship that not only benefit and rejuvenate the community economically, the holistic approach also reduces the impact of human activities on the environment, thus redefining the disadvantages and giving new dimension to the industrial impact on to the natural environment. The introduction of a productive urban landscape is envisioned to address the aforementioned dilemma in response to its increased population. Access to healthy food within a set catchment area is thus vital to be integrated in these areas within the masterplan proposal. Focuses are placed on the sustainable use of the urban landscape which would otherwise be left undermined; an integrated Sustainable Urban Drainage system (SUDs) is equally important to help deliver the vision.

Site Boundary From boundary to edge 1

Site boundary was chosen according to the proximity of the important places to the industrial estate that the masterplan wishes to inform. These are mainly the green belt fringe where the doll houses lie, the canal edge where its significance is currently diminished by the factories in front, and Balmore Road which borders and marks the entrance into Milton.

Area of Transformation

Canal side Mix use core

Highlighted here are the visions envisaged for each different core based on each individual site’s potential, constraints and characters. However, these are preliminary and require a thorough study on the densities and the Transect Zone character which will determine the plot sizes, building height, setbacks, and typology, as well as the design on streets fronting these buildings.

With this, the masterplan has adopted the compact city approach where ideally, centres with global nodes should be well connected by the urban main roads, whereas district and local nodes would be the aggregation of town centres which are well connected by local main streets to the global nodes supporting the activities and functions. Looking at greater Glasgow today, global node is found in the city centre; and district node at West End. There are clusters of neighbourhood nodes dispersed around the north and south, yet this often leads to unlively neighbourhoods as the low population density has made any infrastructure investment unviable. Therefore, the prospect of increasing Milton’s population from 6,000 to 13,000 will make it somewhat between a neighbourhood and an urban district, and that its addition of a district node in North Glasgow is vital to not only support Milton’s 2050 regeneration programme, but also to stimulate a cross interaction of activities around culture, social and economy across the north and south of Glasgow.

The compact city model. Towards an Urban Renaissance.

Reading in conjunction with the masterplan proposal at the Strategic stage, the new Milton train station that is located at Ashgill Road at the eastern end of the neighbourhood area will be an important node as it brings people from the city centre to Milton. Moreover, once the Colston - Liddesdale - Balmore connection is established, this direct and linear path has the potential to be transformed into a vibrant place with mix use developments flooding vibrant activities on to the streets, particularly around the industrial area being the main provider of employment opportunities. The location of a district node is therefore located at the Liddesdale Road junction as it has the most direct connection to the urban main road, local node, as well as the canal side.

Street Hierarchy The major change on the existing road network is to unloop the existing Glentanar Road as its current form has always portrayed difficulties to us at the designing of the masterplan. Not only does this convoluted network and its only entry point over 22 acres of land makes the legibility of area seem isolated from the rest of Milton, the resulting blocks’ sizes also contradicts to the densities this masterplan has targeted for this area as a district node. It is proposed that diverting part of Glentanar Road (parallel to the canal) to join at Balmore Road will invert the situation. The new connection is called St. Agnes Street and will serve as a new entry route into Balmore Industrial area. Distinct connections from the local to district node are also addressed at joining Egilsay Crescent to Glentanar Road (parallel to the doll houses) and a new route linking Liddesdale Road to the canal, which will be the Newbridge Place. These newly established connections take on the existing Castlebay Street link to form a more coherent and robust bare bone of the road network serving the industrial area.

Existing Road Section

Reading in parallel on the existing road situation, it is clear that the road network in Milton was solely desiged for cars, as the pedestrian are only left with a narrow path. Also worth noticing is the lack of a sense of enclosure when walking on the street. This has provide us some useful information for a later stage of masterplan development on street design.

Connecting Milton to the Wider Transport Network

There are several bus serving Milton. By altering the road network as well as identifying new nodes of activitiy will increase the density particularly on the areas which are bounded by the urban main streets. The improved density could take advantage of the existing bus services by reinforcing certain important route within Milton, such as Ashgill Road, Scaraway Street and Liddesdale Road which will be served by bus 75 from the South, bus M3 from the East, and bus 128 from the West, serving the community from every direction. Service 7/7A which currently stops at the junction before entering Balmore Industrial area is proposed to make a loop around the industrial zone, bringing people from the centre to the highly specialised area.

Current bus network

The cycling network on the other hand, is strengthened on Milton’s side and acts a starting point into Possil Marsh. Within the site, the cycling network is integrated throughout along with the green network which together form a coherent and pleasing cycling route. Current cycling network

Environmental Network Positioning an environmental sensitive design approach at the forefront, the proposed green network addresses the voided development left by the vast amount of derelict and vacant land by stitching these areas to form and integrated green network that wishes to leave a positive impact to the environment as well as the general health of the residents living around. A set percentage of these vacant and derelict lands are reclaimed and transformed into a productive urban landscape. The proposed green network consists of greenbelt, canal side, linear/ open parks, community garden, terraced allotments, rooftop gardens, greenhouse, hydroponics and Bioswale. While the greenbelt stops further developments up north protecting the country’s existing green network, green infrastructure along the canal such as a new paved cycling and walking path and a bridge are proposed to strengthen the connection of Milton to the other canal communities. The open park along the canal will also have a walking trail and a bird watch station for educational purposes, where its connection will be strengthened by a strip of tree line joining up to Liddesdale Road. Meanwhile, the historical green strip along Castlebay Street which leads up to the greenbelt are kept and will be transformed into a linear park. All of these public greens will be incorporated into the cycling network to form a unified whole. Another important element which forms the skeleton of the green network is the productive green spaces, i.e. the terraced allotments, community garden and rooftop garden. These spaces are very much community centred and is in itself designed to be flexible to suit the needs and contingencies of the socioeconomic climate. However, this will be further discussed in a later chapter.

As have been explored in the previous Analysis and Strategy stage, the lack of a focal point in the industrial area and that the convoluted road network has altogether made the legibility and accessibility to the site difficult. There is no bus services serving the area nor a cycling route around. The deciding factor on the location of node are heavily dependent on the proposed road hierarchy. This means that establishing Liddesdale link to the urban main road signifies a liner congregation of nodes of activities along the street as it is the main through route in Milton. Thus, within a 400m radius from the linear node, mix use as well as higher density developments are required to sustain an economically viable community.

Iteration 3 Masterplan development

Iteration 1 set the foundation on joining Liddesdale Road to A879 and establishing connections along the green corridor to the canal side. It also put forward the idea of softening the edge between the doll houses and the industrial area. However, the design was still pretty much restricted by the convoluted Glentanar Road, and that a clear connection from the industrial area to the rest of Milton has not been established. Iteration2 looked at the size of the block created when a satisfied road network and connections have been achieved. The area of the block is compared with other urban areas of Glasgow and we soon came to realise that some of the blocks are significantly huge and might require a secondary/ internal lane. These prompted us to look at the interconnectivity of two adjacent blocks. Iteration 3 focused on the plot size development and the targeted densities required within each particular block. At this stage, we started to look into Glasgowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s changing housing tenure and setting the plot passport.

Multiple Centrality Assessment To testify the proposal on the location of node and road hierarchy, we ran MCA analysis tool on all centralities and was proven with recognizably positive results not only on a local level but also the wider city context. On Global closeness, about 90% of Milton shows considerably high closeness to the city centre which is hugely beneficial to the northern part of Milton. The new links introduced in the industrial area has undoubtedly alleviate current Liddesdale Road being the division between the north and the south.

On Betweenness centrality, the result on Liddesdale Road’s link to the A879 and A803 is as expected. We have also achieved a high Betweenness index on introducing a secondary East-West connection: St. Agnes StreetGlentanar Road- Egilsay Crescent- Scaraway Street- Duncryne Place (Bishopbriggs). This result gave us an important data on locating bus services and mix use development along these main routes.

In terms of pedestrian network, it does not differ much from the vehicular one. However, at a later stage where street design is involved, these areas have to be carefully designed not only for the automobile users but also the pedestrians and cyclists alike.

On Closeness centrality, the result shows that the accessibility towards the industrial area from the neighbourhood has significantly improved within a 5-minute walk. This is particularly true for its pedestrian network. While locating corner shops around places with high closeness centrality can help reduce the reliance on car, this also provides us the useful insight on the decision to locate

pockets of green spaces, parks and community allotments, which altogether form the integrated green network that gives the community a liveable, walkable and healthy environment.

On Straightness Centrality, it shows huge improvement on the legibility of the area. This complements Balmore Industrial area as a district node which is clear and easy to get to. The new proposed Liddesdale Road- Newbridge Place connection to the canal on the other hand has also shown high Straightness Centrality as the route is direct, bringing Milton’s residence from the local node (new proposed train station, not included in site boundary) all the way to the canal.

Due to site restraints, it has not been possible to extend the Doll Houses’ grid-like vehicular network to Glentanar Road. However, we see the linkages a vital part to thread the communities on the north to the rest of Milton, as the current network has not been made easy to navigate and access to the Doll Houses. Thus a formalised pedestrian path extending from Glentanar Road (local main) is proposed and this shows a distinct and clear answer. 2050 Milton Regeneration Masterplan

The Urban Transect There are 6 urban transect zones: Rural Preserve (T1), Rural Reserves (T2), Sub-Urban (T3), General Urban (T4), Urban Center (T5), and Urban Core (T6), each of which portrays a geographic cross section of a region to reveal a sequence of environments. The transect zone is important in urban planning to prevent urban sprawl as it prescribes the environment and settings by which certain activities and building typologies have to obey. However, this Transect approach may evolve to another type of immersive environment in the future (usually one of higher urban intensity) to suit its projected future needs. In Milton, the regeneration of the industrial area falls between T2-T5 (see plan attached). Each of these zones, overlay with the information gathered from the earlier foundation masterplan on the proposed node and density, will illustrate the building typologies that can be suited in each respective environment. Reading in parallel to the Local Urban Code, this masterplan proposal is intended to set out a regulatory framework, in this case the Plot Passport that could drive Milton in the next 30 years yet is flexible enough to adapt to the many factors of contingencies such as the change in socio-economic landscape. This will be further demonstrated in the following pages. There will be different types of green spaces provided in the masterplan to form a coherent and continuous productive urban landscape throughout. Nonetheless, the type and size of plantable area (particularly in residential areas) are very much determined by the transect zone and building typology. For example, transect zone T2/T3 with a low density housing i.e.

66

2050 Milton Regeneration Masterplan

single family homes would be assigned a larger backyard garden; whereas transect zone T4/T5 with a higher density housing i.e. apartments or flats would be assigned a sizeable amenity space (which could in part, transform into a collective planting area on achieving a collective agreement from all the residents). For plots with the minimum plot sizes, a green roof top planting space would be the solution. The rationale behind the allocation of different green spaces according to the densities indicates the land ownership shared by the number of people living within the same plot. For individual ownership, the owner has the freedom to personalize his garden to his heartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire. On the contrary, communal land ownership is considered a constraint as agreements have to be established amongst all residents living on the same plot. Therefore, should it be provided with a large plot size (similar to a single family house) when no agreement has been established, the land would be left vacant or unruly. This is not what we want to achieve.

The resulting road network has illustrated the basic block structure of the urban fabric. It is now crucial to decide on its block layout and the respective Gross density. Not to be confused with population density, gross density measures the number of habitable units per hectare. Therefore, blocks which are nearer to the core of the node would denote a higher gross density requirement and vice versa. Specialist block, however would be rated n/a. We have calculated the difference in densities on two places from the area of confirmation with the highest and lowest gross density and divided by a factor of 9 to get an average score. Shown here is the required densities for Milton. These figures have been referenced to the Local Urban Code to get a diverse range of building types and forms to be applied on.

An eco-junction to a compact and sustainable urban village

Adapting the Local Urban Code The Local Urban Code is a glossary of a diverse range of build forms and types found in Glasgow, which is categorised based on the gross density of a given sample area (measured in hectare) as well as the street type that fronts the building. This is an extremely useful tool to be applied in master planning, as it takes precedence on the success/ failure of places and suggest an opportunity for designers to create a unique yet consistent built form in Glasgow. It is flexible to use as the range of densities outlined is set as a benchmark where users can adapt to suit. In the case of Milton, a district node denotes a high density at the suburban level. Therefore, when comparing other urban areas in Glasgow for the required density, Milton would drop a tier down on the scope as outlined in LUC.

The Local Urban Code

Having cross referenced the LUC with the proposed gross density, the resulting street characters are the outcome that both satisfies the building typology and plots divisions.

Road Hierarchy vs Street Frontage

Road hierarchy has a significant influence on both the build type and the built frontages. Ideally, an urban main or a local main road with a mix use development should have an active frontage to attract people. Conversely, an urban main or a local main with a low active frontage/ high privacy level would fail to transform the main streets into a vibrant one as it denotes a stronger public-private boundary. Below, we have categorised the type of street frontage based on the road hierarchical order.

Plot development Block 1-4: Live-work units

Glentanar Road fronting the doll houses has always seen to be the disconnector of the community living there to the rest of the industrial site. This disconnection is also exemplified by the slope (of about 2m in height). Taking on a challenge to turn constraints into opportunities, the proposal took precedence on live work units as it differentiates its different use of space by level changes. This is seen as the solution to the site constraints and with that, presented is a unique place that gives a define edge yet is both inviting and well connected to the rest of the community.

Precedent Study

Location: Godson Street, London Architect: Edgley Design

The mixed use development within Milton’s masterplan is greatly inspired by this latest mixed-use development in Islington, London. The architects- Edgley Design have reinterpreted the typology of a typical Georgian terrace in this commercial and residential development. The commercial units spanned two floors rising from the basement, acting like the ‘pedestals’ supporting the living spaces above. This is the latest mixed-use development to answer the question of the ultimate work/life balance.

Revitalising the Balmore industrial area parallel to the Canal is a delicate opportunity to negotiate the Milton local needs. The aim for Milton canal part is to be a part of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scottish Sustainable Communityâ&#x20AC;?. New developments along the Canal will light up for the wider regeneration of Milton neighbourhoods. Along the canal within the project boundary, there are four main blocks division. The blocks 21, 20 & 19 are close to the urban main road as a real mix of developments which includes commercial and residential area whereas Block 8 is planned to be one of the specialist blocks within the masterplan with the intention to open up the Canal as a public and natural reserve area to the heart of the Milton and its surroundings.

Design principals The Canal also functions as a green bridge to Possil Marsh Wildlife Reserve. There are new proposed pedestrian bridges to give connectivity from the Canal to Possil Marsh, which are accessible from Liddesdale Road and Glentanar Road. The Canal corridor is straight through to the green belt on the northern edge of Milton by following a woodland trail and passing through the doll houses.

Proposed programmes along the canal 1. Skate Park The topography of the canal is slightly lower than Glentanar Road. This is an opportunity to use this sloped area as a skate park and open steps to the canal. This park is designated as a new landmark along the Forth and Clyde Canal as a leisure and lively welcome area. According to Milton Talks report 2016, most of the respondents thought that young people were often bored and would spend time on the street. They wanted to see a safe and clean environment. This new type of urban space will create a new social space and attract families and skaters from the neighbourhoods. A skate hiring, bike clinic and small food shops are provided and accessible both from the skate park, the canal steps and from Glentanar Road. 2. Milton Boat House The canal is designed to be accessible by moorings. The boats are able to stay overnight and explore at Miltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eco junction. The Milton Boat House is provided for changing, teaching and a community fitness training and reception space with dramatic views up to the Possil Marsh and the green belt. The design is acknowledged to the Passivhaus design principles with triple glazing, and approaching zero carbon standards.

Proposed programmes along the canal 3. Environmental Research Centre The proposed research centre is indicated both a vibrant environmental research and interactive education for all. Students, professionals and researchers are provided with offices and fully equipped classrooms. It is easily accessible from the canal and visitors could stop by to explore and learn the history of Milton environments and ecological interventions. 4. Woodland Trail The green area long the canal has been covered by vacant as well as badly maintained warehouses which has had a significant negative impact on the overall ecological quality along the canal. The woodland trial is rejuvenated base on the current informal path starting from the end of the Boat House and the Environmental Research Centre, passing by the doll houses to the North of Milton all the way to the green belt. The new housings, spacious recreational activities area and considerable maintenance of existing woodlands are dedicated not only linking the canal to its surrounding communities but also to sustain the environment by a range of diverse and exciting developments.

Block 12: Sheltered Housing This proposal wishes to address Miltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s older population group by providing a shelter housing on site. The location of which is influenced by the historical green strip that has been kept since the existence of the town. With that in mind, this proposal wants to preserve this strip of land from any developments, and turn it into a linear park that connects all the way to the green belt. The proposed sheltered housing will face the proposed linear park as providing a green and healthy environment to the older population at close proximity is likely to make one healthier and happier. Leading from the linear park is block 12 which will be developed into a public open park as it is located at the junction of the local main road connecting to the local node, making it more central and easily accessible than elsewhere.

This cluster of new buildings for the Scottish War Blinded is nestled in the village of Wilkieston. The ambition of this development was to create a family of modest structures within a garden setting. The organisation of the buildings has been kept simple to ease the navigation of users. The dwellings have generous, light-filled rooms off a central hall. The sports hall has gym and changing facilities to the north and a large room to the south which provides a flexible setting for various activities. The architectural language is consistant throughout. External walls comprise of vertical glazed slots between solid timber bays. The bays support a curved zinc roof which sweeps beyond the external walls to create sheltered welcome and garden areas.

Block 14: Market place and allotments

The communities in Milton today is offered with limited choices of fresh food produce as well as diversities in shops and restaurants, which is worrying for the overall health of the residents.

specialist area where allotments activities, a market place and a green house with hydroponics will take place. Here, we have looked at ` within the urban fabric of Barcelona, which sits in an ordinary block.

The allotment and market place propocal will act as a common ground for the communities in Milton around food production and food sharing, an approach which builds upon the exisitng local plannig initiatives by LoveMilton which has seen positive results on site. The proposal is hoped to solve some of the current social issues particularly on health and education due to food deprivation in the community. It will also act as a driver to create unique places which could foster a sense of identity in the local community and contribute to the general social wellbeing in the area.

A similar approach is taken in the case of Miltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market place in Block 12. Due to its unique characters, all adjacent blocks bounding Block 12 would have to have sufficient densities to support the activities being proposed in the heart of Milton.

The concept not only supports localism, it also effectively promotes a walkable neighbourhood with amenities at oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s convenience. The entire Block 12 will be developed into a

Allotments and the site The new connection leading from Kilfinan Road and Newbridge Place meets at the highest point of Milton, at Liddesdale Road. Taking into account that this block is a specialist area where allotments and a market place will take place, this gave a lot of advantages when it comes to designing the place. The market place will be placed at the highest point of the wedge, beckoning visitors coming from every direction, whereas the slope leading down to the direction of the canal is the perfect backdrop for a terraced allotment. When careful and attentive details are given, this productive landscape will give contribute to pleasant and aesthetical aspects to the local commnity as well as being a landmark itself.

Plot Passport

The plot-based urbanism approach adopted in Milton’s masterplan is central to the idea of creating vibrant spaces yet is flexible enough to adapt and cater the needs of the people living in Milton. To put this idea into practice, each plot would be assigned a self-build plot passport to potential buyers. It is a document which outlines design rules and guidelines such as the maximum building height, depth, building materials etc. where self-builders simply have to demonstrate compliance on the ‘rules’ without the need for planning application. This The Urban Beads by MVRDV. The city is seen as a would in effect, attract potential buyers from composition of a variety of different or repeating elements. all background to personalise their homes that would suit their tastes, while at the same time allowing a diverse range of design opportunities that contributes to a more vibrant urban spaces people would want to live in. A precedent study on Maryhill a context which is similar to Milton, demonstrates that the implementation of Plot Passport is seen as an alternative to diversify the housing variety that responses to Glasgow’s rising population and the change in tenure type. This is the pioneer of selfbuild scheme in Scotland which is set as a testing ground to test the local appetite for enabled self-build in the city to create a contemporary urban village as well as to promote alternative, affordable models of housing that helps people to stay living in the city, rather than having to move out to find homes that suit their needs. In the context of Milton, we have selected 3 blocks each of which is of low, medium and high density range to demonstrate the idea of a Plot Passport at different scales in the next few pages.

The Netherlands’ Almere leads the way on self-build communities.

“Self-build provides the opportunity for people to work together – sharing costs and building relationships as they build their houses. Self builders invest emotionally in their homes and are more likely to stay in the community for the long term.” - Angela Doran, Glasgow City Council

The Green Passport a Productive Urban Landscape The Square Foot Gardening method

The conventional allotment planting method which requires an enormous amount of land (250m2 to feed one person) is contradictory to the implementation of a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Garden Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; within the heart of Milton when the industrial area is proposed to be densified. Thus, a new method of urban food production- the square foot gardening method is introduced, which only requires as little as 16 square feet per person for fresh eating and 32 square feet per person to have enough for preserving.

Square-foot garden

Square foot gardening is the practice of dividing the growing area into small square sections with the aim to assist in planning and creating an intensive planting area, which results in a simple and orderly gardening system. One of its many advantages is that they can form a living mulch, as well as preventing weeds from establishing or even germinating. Owing to its small footprint, it is more practical to make covers or cages to protect plants from pests or adverse weather conditions than with larger gardens or allotments. To extend the growing season of a square foot garden, a cold/ hot frame may be built around and located facing South to capture more light and heat during the colder months of spring and winter.

The amount of land provided for food production

A square foot garden unit measuring 1.5 m2 can hold an average of 130 plants and produces enough vegetables for one person. A family of four can have fresh greens in abundance throughout the growing season and beyond from only 6m2 of growing space. Here, we have demonstrated through a basic calculation on the amount of land provided within this masterplan that is available for productive urban Legends planting within each household.

The result shows that a normal plot size is significantly productive when the square foot gardening method is applied, reversing the conventional method of allotment planting. It is generally observed that given the same amount of land, the higher gross density value shows better efficiency in terms of productive land use. This has demonstrated how a growing town such as the envisioned Milton could be the pioneer to a sustainable and self-contained community in North Glasgow.

The proposed Master Plan have “total closure” which involves the road being totally closed off to all traffic by means of physical measures (Preston Close). The proposed new road starts at the end of Glentanar Road on the Allied Bakery side, which is connected to the Urban Main Road. This new street has designed careful consideration for the Bakery Lorries and trucks to the Industry. This junction will have a traffic point and safety road crossings from the Lambhill side to the Milton. The visible coloured and textured surfaces are applied as psychological traffic calming schemes to reduce the speed limit before the traffic point. The turning point around the traffic area where the use of planters and bollards are designed as barriers along the sidewalk.The wide sidewalk area is provided in front of the mixed-use building to dedicate the use of outdoor restaurants and shops.

Castlebay Street

Currently, in Milton, street bumps have been solely relied on to slow down speed limits on most of the streets. The proposed master plan replaces those street bumps by alternative traffic calming methods that are not only more visually pleasant but also more effective.

Placing pedestrian and cyclist at the forefront Shared Street (Local Street) The level of the street surface is the same with different paving material uses; whereas the planter boxes clearly separate the sidewalk, parking and the vehicles ways. The parking area with trees planted along its outer edge of the street provides a flexible transition zone in the shared commercial street. The planters can be applied as a seating area and beside of the planters has the bikes stand. The parking space is welcomed for use of outdoor restaurants or cafes as well as for exhibition space on special occasions.

Pedestrian street design Doll extension and the opening up of Glentanar road has inevitably made the walking experience a pleasant one as there are more â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;escape routesâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC; as compared to the current winding route. Street parking and road side planting aid in slowing down the traffic as drivers tend to halt to look for oncoming traffic.

Plot evolution Phase 1 Similar to conventional development, except the residents are provided with deeper plot.

Plot evolution Phase 2 Residents could achieve a collective agreement on giving up part of their backyard to create a community garden at the rear of their plots.

Plot evolution Phase 3 There is an alternative where one or two of the plots could be opened up to create a more inviting community garden plots by plots.

Establishing the Forth and Clyde Canal link The main strategies here involves opening up the industrial area and build the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;faceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on southwestern edge of Milton to attract potential buyers. This involves mainly in infilling derelict land. The new bridge links Milton to Lambhill, whereas the addition of mix use development along the urban main road could benefit the residents living in south Milton as well as Lambhill. a. Preliminary - Demolition of derelict factories around Allied Bakery for the construction of new Liddesdale road extension. b. Road infrastructure - Liddesdale Road connection to the canal (Newbridge Place construction) - New bridge across the canal construction - Doll house link to Glentanar Road - Paved good cycling and pedestrian path along the canal c. Housing: - Canal side housing developments - Mix use development along Balmore Road and St. Agnes Street d. Social: - Community workshops and consultations on self build projects. - Potential small scale housing expo on few selected plots of lands to assist the above. e. Transition phase: - Planning application on Boat house and Educational Center construction

2050 Milton Regeneration Masterplan

An eco-junction to a compact and sustainable urban village


Made in MILTON

An eco-junction to a compact and sustainable urban village

Made in Milton is the outcome of its 2050 regeneration master planning approach which is set against the backdrop of a suburban town suffering from the dilemmas of a post war construction programme. It exemplifies and pinpoints the solution to a more compact, self-sustained and sustainable model to a town which struggles to define its identity today. The reimagined Balmore Industrial Estates will be transformed into a densified and diversified place, grounded by the narrative of an innovative approach on recycling industrial by-products from its existing industry. The result is a productive urban landscape utilising the by-products from the brewery where it recycles the by-products from the existing bakery for brewing. Underpinning it all are three strands of strategies for a well-connected and integrated â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;self-grownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; town: 1. Stitching Milton with the canal communities along the Forth and Clyde Canal; 2. Improving on its connectivity with the wider road network by establishing the Liddesdale Road link to the A879 and A803; 3. Creating an integrated green network that complements to the existing character of the site. It is envisioned that by 2050, Milton will be a selfsustained town grounded by a strong community spirit based on localism.
