Spencer Yard - Development site
Railway Bridge, Leamington Old Town
Location: Royal Leamington Spa
CDP was appointed by Warwick District Council in December 2017 to deliver an ambitious, ‘place shaping’ master plan that is transformational; viable; fundable; deliverable; sustainable, and of high-quality design.
Setting out how the “Old Town” area could become a bright, vital and distinct destination and attraction for the district. Key considerations to be given to fusing together the existing rich historic architecture with a modern twist.
The environment should be based around refurbished and new building spaces, and active public spaces, with public art throughout, creating an interesting, vibrant and ‘intelligent’ hub attraction.
The draft masterplan was delivered in November 2018 and following a period of consultation, CDP presented a final masterplan in Spring 2019. The final sign off was given to this project in November 2019 and will start in early 2020. The first part of this project will include the development of Spencer Yard and the derelict United Reform Church, Spencer St, which has now been submitted for planning permission. A decision is due in March 21.
