Efficient, modern design

Cottam Meadow is Built for Life: this means that the homes and development have met 12 Government endorsed requirements and is the sign of a great place to live. You'll be near to local shops, schools, parks and health care services - and you won't have far to travel to get the bus or train into the city centre.

The homes are spacious and easily adaptable to cater for all stages of life. The streets are well-defined and designed to encourage low driving speeds, making it safe for children too.

Some of the requirements include: 

  • Being close to good facilities and services
  • Excellent links to public transport
  • Maintaining wildlife habitats and existing buildings
  • Creating well-defined streets and open spaces

All of the above are incorporated throughout Cottam Meadow, making it a truly sustainable and inspiring development.
