A team led by architect Jestico + Whiles will prepare plans for 1,800 homes on the site, together with commercial and community buildings.
The design team also includes Whitelaw Turkington, working on landscape, XCO2, which is advising on low energy solutions, and acoustic consultants Sandy Brown Associates.
Its winning design proposals set out a ‘human-scale’ scheme, rather than high-rise modern housing blocks which have found favour in recent years.
The plan envisages a mixture of townhouses and apartments in lower rise buildings of between three and five storeys set out in traditional street plans with squares.
Detailed planning permission is being sought for the first sub-phase, expected to consist of around 500 homes, with just over 100 townhouses being started when planning is approved.
A planning application is expected to be submitted later this year.
The first and second phases delivered 1,000 homes and started on site in 1999.
Future phases will incorporate an array of passive and active energy management measures, which are likely to include combined heat and power generation, greywater recycling, rainwater harvesting and vacuum assisted waste removal.
