Whitehill and Bordon
GLA have been appointed as part of the design team for the planning, design and delivery of three residential development parcels and key areas of public open space as part of the expansive Prince Philip Park. The redevelopment of these former barracks into a NHS England ‘Healthy New Town’ is an innovative and major regeneration project. GLA have utilised mature wooded boundaries and woodland NEAP and have embraced their amenity value through the introduction of pedestrian/cycle paths.
Rustington, West Sussex
GLA have prepared detailed landscape proposals for a residential development close to a Grade II listed convalescent care home. The existing garden of the nearby historic building and the sea front location have inspired a series of pocket parks, new tree and ornamental planting, and a central Rustington Square with play strategy. Circulation around the site is enabled by a shared surface approach.
The Tannery, Wiltshire
The industrial heritage and conservation area status of this site have presented both constraints and opportunities. GLA are developing a masterplan for the partial demolition and regeneration of an existing historic Tannery complex into a mixed-used development focused on work-hubs, studios and community use. Residential development is planned in the adjoining land. Planting strategies provide structure and biodiversity gain, and the inclusion of sculpture, play equipment and furniture te
Private Residence, Somerset
Conscious of the Coach House’s historic estate location, GLA have developed proposals to improve the sense of arrival and create a stronger connection between the house and its grounds. Contemporary gardens that reflect the architectural renovations and incorporate ecological enhancements are proposed, as well as the creation of new woodland areas. The landscape has been developed to enable modern management techniques in the maintenance of the grounds.
Deptford Wharf, London
This large-scale regeneration project in London involves the detail design of 3 Plots made up of high residential blocks, connected via ground level parking. Our introduction of roof gardens, tree-lined streets, pocket parks and urban spaces will bring a uniqueness to the site. The landscape has been carefully designed to work within the structural constraints of the superstructure through the co-ordination and technical resolution of Level 3 BIM and the use of Revit.
Combe Grove, Bath
Combe Grove, a hotel and members club on the eastern edge of the city of Bath, has been recently purchased by the Elmhurst Foundation. GLA have been appointed to help develop the visionary masterplan, which will activiely enhance both the wildlife and recreational value the Estate has to offer.
GLA has been appointed as part of a multi-disciplinary team to create a masterplan for the extension (approx. 500 homes) of Cullompton.
Our design emphasis was on expressing the unique ecological character of the Devon Landscape with public realm proposals that include areas of open space for recreation, woodlands, a play area and street design. Through conducting layers of analysis, we have responded to the existing features to continue the provision of a highly biodiverse site.
St Marys and St Peters
Greenhalgh Landscape Architecture are working with Kier Construction and Stride Treglown Architects to deliver a new Primary School. At the heart of the scheme is a new courtyard with a series of external classrooms, productive gardens and a performance area. A courtyard creates a communal space at the centre of the new scheme bringing together the two schools. There has been a focus on an improved sense of arrival to provide a welcoming, safe and legible entrance.
James Street West, Bath
Working with Stride Treglown Architects, GLA were appointed to provide landscape proposals for a new student residential development in Bath. The constrained site offered many competing elements. However, links to the surrounding area have been improved and the street scene has been enhanced with new tree and shrub planting, shared space and pocket parks.
Thoulstone Park, Wiltshire
GLA have been appointed to develop proposals for a rural work hub that aims to support emerging
high tech and creative businesses in the south west. The design responds to distinctive local landforms and field patterns to enable
the new development to fit with the wider rural setting. The proposals seek to create an overall biodiversity gain by increasing the existing ecology networks and by creating wetland habitats, green and brown roofs, wet woodland and managed grassland meadows.
GLA have been developing proposals for the conversion of the semi derelict Poultry Farm with Mitchell Ely Gould Architects and PlanningSphere. Key to the development is retaining the agricultural aesthetic of the buildings and landscape. New tree planting, managed grassland meadows and natural landscape boundaries will strengthen the surrounding distinctive field patterns and re-establish the agricultural grassland.
Elm Grove, Wiltshire
Greenhalgh Landscape Architecture are working with developers to provide a landscape led masterplan for up to 300 homes. In response to National Landscape Classifications, proposals reflect a clear and robust approach of providing definition between the urban and rural edge and integrating sensitive boundary treatments.
Private Residence, Oxfordshire
Working with architects Nash Partnership, GLA are providing landscape proposals to connect a new modern home to its unique context. Located on the River Thames and within an area of both AONB and conservation status, the landscape proposals introduce new ecological habitats and create an illusion that the Thames snakes into the site and up to the proposed building.
Working for the NHS Property Services Limited, GLA was commissioned to prepare an outline planning application for the redevelopment of a hospital site to residential development. The landscape led scheme needed to take into account the neighbouring Salisbury Plain SSSI, conservation area status, field drains, TPO’d trees and protected species. The proposals encourage pedestrian activity through shared surfaces, informal pedestrian connections and a playful open space area.
The vision is to provide a contemporary and sustainable residential community within an ecologically rich landscape. At its heart, a central green space will retain the existing TUFA watercourse and provide a community focus with seating and play opportunities. The sloping character of the site offers both constraint and opportunity. GLA’s proactive approach has identified the most cost-effective solutions in response to the topography, but also embraces the existing long-distance views.
Roseberry Place, Bath
Greenhalgh Landscape Architecture are part of the design team to deliver a mixed-use development at Roseberry Place, Bath.

Private Residence, Somerset
We have been invited by a private client to masterplan their estate as part of the renovation and diversification of an existing farm and farmhouse.

The key principles from the landscape strategy are to; rediscover elements of the Victorian garden, restore the southern gardens, orchard and woodland; ensure a legacy of tree planting; reveal decorative features of the garden; and, create a new contemporary garden to enhance the southern elevation of the manor house.
Monkey Island, Berkshire
We have joined the design team for the redevelopment of Monkey Island Hotel in Bray-on-Thames. The prominence and stature of this once great attraction is to be revived. The new hotel masterplan explores better use of the islands and estate, the repair and restoration of the Grade 1 listed pavilions, the provision of new accommodation and spa facilities, and enhancements to the landscape setting.
We have been appointed by Kersfield Developments to prepare landscape proposals for the redevelopment of this historic Grade II listed house, stable block, lodge and landscape.
