Baltic Wharf’s emerging layout design and landscape strategy will shown for the first time at an interactive workshop for community groups and internet viewers on Tuesday, March 27.
The new blueprint for parts of the 26-acre Totnes riverside site takes into account thousands of comments left during a series of consultation events last month.
Community groups will be shown the new plans and asked to compare them with ideas and suggestions collected from hundreds of people in the town.
The session will be broadcast live on internet TV from 7pm at www.livestream.com/dartmedia.
Those watching the session on the internet will be invited to contribute.
One of the ideas up for discussion is how an arts strategy for the site should develop, with ideas such as whether Baltic Wharf should include dedicated studio space for local artists to work and exhibit in.
Steve Mittler, director of Baltic Wharf, said: “This is a chance to test the water and make sure we have properly understood what people were telling us during the consultation.”
Baltic Wharf has outline planning permission for a mixture of homes, employment space, a retirement village and around 13 acres of public green space.
Phase one of the site, for which the detailed plans are now being drawn up, includes much of the site’s housing and its open spaces strategy.
The plans are expected to be ready for wider public scrutiny in May after which they will submitted for detailed planning permission.
