Introduction Housing, mostly by Wimpey Homes, to a masterplan established in conjunction with Falkirk Council. The housing uses standard house types, some re-elevated in contextual material. Density is consistent throughout as are 4 bed house size, detached format and cul-de-sacs layout. The Housebuilders here used in-house architectural services.

Study Area The study area covers the housing largely procured by Wimpey Homes with a small section to the south, at Grahamsdyke Place, by Persimmon Homes. The housing includes frontages to the adjoining historic streets Grahamsdyke Road and Gauze Road, with the majority of the housing within a new residential area set behind these frontages. [See Site Plan]

Location The development is an infill site within the built-up area of Bo’ness, adjoining the eastern approach to Bo’ness, alongside the new Bo’ness academy. Local schools and retail are within 5 minutes walking distance. The elevated area is separated from the town centre and harbour of Bo’ness by steep historic streets. The land focuses on a short east-west valley just south of the historic line of Antonine wall. [See Site Location Plan]

15 units/ha

The housing was completed between 2001 and 2003.

Description of Built Form Characteristics General This is a complex site that knits into a number of adjoining streets. It has key frontages to Grahamsdyke Road and to Gauze Road, both by Wimpey Homes, where coursed rubble masonry has been used as a cladding material as a response to adjoining historic architecture and street boundary walling. Otherwise a very broad mix involving 13 of the two developer’s standard house types are used for interior streets, with materials largely brick and tile and some use of white render. Density is relatively uniform throughout, including between the 2 developers. In terms of interior space, and fairly consistently throughout the products of both developers, living room and/or dining rooms tend to overlook front gardens whilst family rooms and kitchens overlook the rear. The internal street patterns on the site link to the pre-existing Road lines. Craigallan Park by Wimpey Homes is an infill series of cul-de-sacs by Wimpey Homes in the natural valley between Grahamsdyke Road and the pre-existing Academy Road. Academy Road is re-used but split into two cul-de-sacs, accessed from east and west ends respectively. A branch off eastern Academy Road leads to Grahamsdyke Place, a southern cul-de-sac built out by Persimmon Homes with a south-facing edge to the playing field of the new Bo’ness Academy. A central pedestrian knuckle joins the various parts of the site including east to west Academy Road and the north-south sloping parkland that links Craigallan Park to Grahamsdyke Place.

sac a ‘roads standard’ layout predominates. This includes a separate vehicle carriageway and double footpaths. Then for the separate cul-de-sacs to east and west a ‘shared surface’ approach is adopted, characterized by carriageway narrowing, by footways giving way to a grass verges and by a shared vehicle/pedestrian carriageway. The cul-de-sacs finish in hammer-head turning areas, some with visitor parking. Two-storey detached houses are laid out with a planned variety of house types in a relatively informal composition throughout the three cul-de-sacs. Some frontages are aligned with one another, whilst back gardens that are exposed to the public realm are enclosed by garden walls, providing a degree of enclosure to the street in some locations. The houses do not have front garden walls or enclosure except at the Grahamsdyke gateway. Parking and private accesses are set back from the street front at 12m+ from carriageway centre. Parkland edges are handled in an unusual way at the west and centre of the area. Here house frontages are specially positioned to face away from the street and towards the park, set behind a front garden with strong landscape boundary screening. Parkland link A steeply sloping parkland link joins Craigallan Park with Academy Road. This is sloping grass, with a tarmac path and steel handrail, defined by boundary tree and robust hedge planting on both sides.

The description below begins with the main road frontages, then moves from the main north facing road frontage to Grahamsdyke Road, ending at the south-facing frontage to Bo’ness Academy playing fields. It describes key features of the townscape and layout.

West Academy Road The west end of Academy Road and the head of the parkland link is handled similarly to the layout of the interior of Craigallan Park. The road each side of the break in Academy Road finishes in a turning head, linked by a footpath. As for the handling of parkland edges the adjoining front gardens are separated from the footpath by a high hedge.

Gauze Road/Grahamsdyke Road frontages and entrances Houses with frontage access onto Gauze Road and Grahamsdyke Road respect adjoining building lines. Frontages are consequently set back from the pavement edge, with garden boundaries defined by low masonry walls, gateposts, railings and incorporating front curtilage parking. An archeological site and wayleave appear as a hollow of grassed land between Gauze Road and Academy Road. Part of the frontage to Gauze Road is therefore deeply set back beyond this open ground, with a hedged boundary.

Grahamsdyke Place This looping cul-de-sac turns off east Academy Road into a one-sided street facing south towards the new Bo’ness Academy. A similar road transition to shared surface cul-de-sac is then used as for Craigallan Park. The housing forms an edge condition to the area as a whole, evident in a defined materials palette of white rendered walls, slated roofs and masonry detail. The housing has the character of a series of large detached villas laid out in informal alignments.

A road entrance gateway to Craigallan Park is formed with hedges, tree planting and by the masonry walls of adjoining gardens and garages.

Front gardens are consistently large with frontages at 12m+ from carriageway centre as for Craigallan park.

Craigallan Park Craigallan Park is the series of residential streets forming the interior of the block south of Grahamsdyke Road, from which it is entered. The road layout within this interior block takes two forms. For the gateway and first cul-de75

Townscape On these two sites the developers have considered the edge houses are the transition between existing townscape and new and are re-elevated with an indigenous treatment – creating a locality. Frontage lines are adopted at the historic streets, permissible within plot constraints and where additional detail can be added in response to the context such as masonry boundary walls and railings. Behind these adapted houses a more regular use of standard products is arranged within the flexibility allowed by the cul-de-sac format adopted. However, a number of factors contribute towards an overall feeling of lack of legibility. The approaches into the site, from the main road, has buildings set back and a vehicle dominated carriageway – not particularly welcoming. The common plot format, consistent density and the even distribution of house types throughout the area also creates a repetitive character with few distinguishing features to guide you around. The hierarchy of Craigallan Park is subtly confusing with the inner cul-de-sac streets having stronger forms and frontage definition than the less enclosed and more disjointed ‘roads standard’ streets leading to them (these might have been designed to better link in massing terms with the neighbouring historic streets). The transition from cul-de-sac to main road is therefore less legible with an impression of being dominated by road infrastructure instead of a legible transition and a pleasant route into Bo’ness. Street-making The permeability for walking and cycling is limited by the closed cul-de-sac form, preventing direct through routes that might otherwise have been desirable to link to surrounding streets, such as at either end of Craigallan Park. This has the effect of making walking routes more circuitous, compounded by the slightly unwelcoming nature of the parkland and footpath links with their privacy barriers of planting. Also because the majority of Craigallan Park has separate carriageway and footways the predominant impression is a conventional road layout, marginalising the shared carriageways. The road design incorporates offset carriageway alignments and shared surfaces however this approach does not extend to strategies for influencing driver behaviour such as reduced forward visibility or narrower spaces between adjoining buildings. The delineation of the “road” even in shared surfaces is contradictory to the idea of blurring edges and thus contributed little to traffic calming. Further at 20m+ between buildings there is no particular sense of enclosure established by the buildings.

Private thresholds The transitions between private and public space for the majority of houses is successful with front gardens well-tended and defensible whilst in most case remaining open to the wider neighbourhood, giving a sense, particularly at the end of cul-de-sacs, of an attractive and safe outdoor environment. Through having living rooms directly overlooking at street level most houses also engage positively with the street. The parkland edge and footpath edging plots, with their borders of trees and high hedges, feel less comfortable as an attempt at placemaking. Where the cul-de-sac form has open front gardens to the streets these edge houses have a high privacy barrier separating them from the public realm, preventing overlooking that would have made the park feel a safer place and creating a sense of exaggerated privacy. The handling of the planting at parks forms a barrier between houses and park. This is at once protective and securing for the private space of the house whilst creating a slightly hostile atmosphere for the un-overlooked parkland, exaggerating privacy at the expense of the public realm.
