Creating growth and prosperity in the north through ambitious design and development.
A council in the north needed a bold and ambitious masterplan that would attract investment and restore pride and prosperity in its town centre.
Our placemaking team prepared design briefs for key projects that would create growth and form the basis of a draft masterplan.
We identified eight priority projects which included:
• Creating a public transport hub.
• Improving public spaces, so the town can host more events and festivals.
• Increasing the number of homes by converting disused buildings.
Our funding experts helped to secure an additional £900,000 in funding to allow the project to progress and following public consultation, the council’s cabinet approved the draft masterplan.
