The right way to build new

Canal Boat - - News -

THIS MOD­ERN DE­VEL­OP­MENT of tim­ber-clad canal­side fam­ily homes in Lan­caster has won de­vel­op­ers H20 Ur­ban a de­sign award.

The scheme, which is set in a her­itage area near the city cen­tre, com­bines new build, re­fur­bished Grade 2 listed build­ings, and the op­tion for res­i­dents to buy part-built homes for cus­tom com­ple­tion.

Mean­while, else­where on the net­work, much larger wa­ter­side de­vel­op­ments are on the way: in Le­ices­ter, plans have been sub­mit­ted by the City Coun­cil for Le­ices­ter Wa­ter­side Phase 1, a re­gen­er­a­tion along the Soar Nav­i­ga­tion to the north-west of the city in­volv­ing 550 new homes plus of­fices and re­tail space.

And on the BCN Main Line, a blueprint has been pub­lished for the lat­est phase of the re­de­vel­op­ment which is spread­ing north-west from Birm­ing­ham City Cen­tre, with re­in­state­ment of part of the for­mer Cape Arm in Smeth­wick planned as part of one of five “key brown­field sites” which will see some 5,000 new homes.
