Aesthetics in Totton
'How do we want our town to look?'
One thing that runs through each section of our Neighbourhood Plan (and that comes up repeatedly at consultations with residents) is that Totton (the town centre in particular) is not aesthetically pleasing. With this in mind, we would like to develop a Design Strategy for Totton which can then be referenced during decision making.
Initial ideas for Totton’s Design Strategy to be included in Neighbourhood Plan
To include sites for public art in new developments
To encourage/designate landmark buildings in particular sites
Drawing together Totton’s attractive aspects in our town branding, aesthetics and marketing. Making use of the tide mill, salmon leap, Eling wharf, Testwood Lakes, Hanger Farm etc in design work to make our green spaces more prominent in people’s minds.
For bespoke designs and themes to be included in street furniture/street scene
