Middlewich Canalside

Our masterplanning team provided a masterplan and regeneration strategy for the redevelopment of some 23 hectares, largely used for employment purposes, adjacent to Middlewich town centre. Our proposed strategy, aligned with the Cheshire East Local Plan, sought to deliver an attractive canal-side, mixed-use development comprising new homes, a marina, leisure and community facilities and a new train station; unlocking the sites regeneration potential but also accommodating existing businesses. The project was underpinned by a detailed site and contextual assessment, alongside engagement with a range of groups, including over 60 different landowners who occupy the site.
