This is a key 'green link' between the existing Hamilton Country Park to the south and proposed extensive open space to the north, integrating new foot and cyclepaths with existing links.

The main features of this area include:

  • A focus on open space recreation, to incorporate a village cricket green,
    akin to that on Thorpe Lane, Barkby 'Cricketer's Hill'
  • A gateway entrance to the site, high-quality buildings which will
    define the entrance to the new district centre
  • Ensuring the architecture of homes respects its historic neighbours in
    Barkby, Barkby Thorpe and Queniborough
Southern Gateway
