Hyas Associates have been awarded a number of new commissions.

North Dorchester Garden Community

We have been commissioned to work with Dorset Council on the proposed new Garden Community at North Dorchester.   Our role will be to work alongside the Council and others to help formulate related planning policy guidance and to develop a masterplan and supplementary planning document with specific consideration being given to the formulation of an aspirational vision, development objectives and qualities of place, in context of Garden Community principles. The work will involve project management support for the overall delivery of the project alongside further investigating the opportunities for the development, as well as consideration of the constraints, strengths and weaknesses of the site and enabling consultation locally in developing the masterplan for the project that will sit alongside the emerging Dorset Council Local Plan. The masterplan SPD will be completed and form part of the submission draft of the Local Plan in September 2022.

Regeneration Framework for Bucks Council

The newly formed unitary council of Bucks have appointed Hyas to support the preparation of a county wide Regeneration Framework, together with project management support to their Regeneration Strategy including continued work on Aylesbury Garden Town. Hyas and BE Group will be working collaboratively with the Council’s Economic Growth and Regeneration Service, to put in place a Framework for regenerating the towns of Buckinghamshire. This will involve Corporate and stakeholder engagement, to create a framework that has buy-in across multiple agencies and regeneration bodies.

Our approach to each project draws from our broad range of expertise and brings together the most appropriate blend of in-house experience and like-minded collaborators to deliver effective services for clients.
