Finsbury Estate, Ashford
A large residential development for 800 dwellings in a low lying area with potential flood issues. It incorporates an extensive SUDS scheme including a large attenuation basin, four new ponds and an ephemeral wetland.
Below is a photographic account of its construction.

The planting is becoming established. Within two years it has gone from water logged field to this. Already popular with residents there is erosion along its banks so coir matting will be required at specific selected locations
Midway through completion the photo shows lakes and main access road, illustrating the scale of development
