Mayfield Market Towns is a joint venture with Clarion housing group and the principles developed for Mayfields are intended as a template that could be used in other locations.
The Mayfields initiative is led by Peter Freeman, co-founder of Argent, the developer behind King’s Cross.
Peter has been working on the plans for four years, with a design team including Allies & Morrison, Studio Egret West, Barton Willmore, Adam Architecture, Maccreanor Lavington and Metropolitan Workshop.
The first major document setting out the ideas for Mayfield has been published and circulated, which I helped write and edit.
The philosophy behind Mayfields – a greenfield site – is ‘that developments of a certain critical mass, properly masterplanned, with a mix of uses and a long-term business plan, can create far greater benefits than typical housing estates reliant on existing employment opportunities and services.’
