Located within the outskirts of Worcester Town Centre and situated in a prominent position on the banks of the Worcester and Birmingham Canal the site gains strategic views across the city. Formerly the Worcester Patent Brick works the site is to be developed into a high quality residential development and brings much needed employment opportunities. The reserved matters application for the first phase of development has been approved with the consent forming part of a larger 170 dwelling masterplan.
By creating a series of linked open spaces utilising the existing landscape resource a masterplan evolved which unified the site and responded to its immediate context. Central spine roads are planted with native trees within wide verges under planted with spring flowering bulbs, once established these green corridors will link the scheme with surrounding planting. Strategic views have been created through strategic planning of roads and housing towards the canal-side and beyond. A bespoke POS has been created adjacent to the canal encapsulating the former brick workings, planted with indigenous species and a linked network of signage and information boards the project will be pivotal in the regeneration of the area and Worcester as a whole.
The masterplan is based upon a sustainable model with close links to the city centre, local schools and surrounding footpaths and by-ways. Now complete with detailed Phase 1 planting submitted for planning with construction well underway. Subsequent phases will follow upon planning approval.
