John Phillipps is a highly experienced consultant to the masterplanning team at Carter Jonas, with qualifications in architecture, urban design and landscape architecture, who has worked in both the public and private sectors in the UK and overseas.  A committed urbanist who strongly believes in multi-disciplinary design, his special interest is in the design and implementation of ‘sustainable’ masterplans – mixed use, low carbon, ecologically and ethically sound, as well as locally popular.

I can provide advice on:

The Gipsy Lane site presents an opportunity to provide high quality new homes and supporting facilities in a sustainable location close to Kettering General Hospital, a proposed development to the south, the main railway station and Kettering Town Centre. However there are a number of unusual issues on and around this site which influenced the scale, form and extent of development.


Taking into account the site’s opportunities and constraints, the masterplan accommodates a residential scheme of 350 dwellings, with retail provision and potential care facilities. The proposals are landscape-led, reflecting the site’s edge-of-town location.

A large, linear park is provided along the western half of the site, marking the transition between the town and the countryside beyond. The park contains substantial landscape buffers and mounding to mitigate both the visual and noise impact of the adjacent A14.
