Status

Bertha Park, a 333Ha new settlement near Perth offering 3,000 homes, has been designed to compliment it’s rural surroundings with existing Loch and extensive woodland playing an integral role. Bounded by SAC tributary River Almond, with more than a third of the site to be retained as mature and ancient woodland, it will provide an remarkable setting for people to live, learn and work.

IWA produced a Landscape and Green Infrastructure masterplan within an overall masterplan by AREA Urban Design. The network of green spaces woven through the masterplan contain sustainable drainage, habitats, parklands, cycle and pedestrian paths, growing spaces and play, as well as serving as visual and environmental shelter. Strong wooded connections will be forged between existing mature woodlands, whilst the network of swales and wetland basins will link to the existing ponds and water courses.
