The six hectare Southwater Core area of Telford will be a mixed-use development with new cafés, bars and restaurants, offices, shops, civic, cultural and leisure facilities, linked by high-quality streets and public spaces.
A new high street will link neighbouring sites and encourage people through the site to a new central public square, enhanced by high-quality lighting as public art, creating a 24-hour character for the area. The new masterplan will help integrate other key areas in the town centre, including the Civic Quarter, Telford Shopping Centre and the Telford International Centre, where major expansion is proposed.
