Mixed use development can maximise site value and potential whilst offering a flexibility of different uses within a building or on land. Mixed use and diversification projects can include small scale projects as well as major developments.
Mixed use development can include a range of many different uses, for example retail, residential, community and entertainment. A large housing development that also includes proposals for other uses like shops, schools, employment and community facilities, can really have a beneficial impact. This would result in a new community and would mean that new residents would not have to travel far to shops, work or schools. They create a sense of belonging and a thriving community.
Similarly new developments can really contribute to the vitality and vibrancy of our existing city and town centres if they include a mix of retail, residential, and leisure facilities.
