Planners clear Stratford gateway scheme

Planners have given the all-clear to a £45 million scheme to redevelop a strategic site at the gateway to Stratford-upon-Avon

BBLB Architects’ project – for developers SCM Properties and Stoford Living – will transform a derelict site once used as a cattle market, to ‘create a modern and vibrant gateway to the town’.

The mixed-use scheme will include 197 new homes, 12,500m2 of commercial space, a new public square and an improved bus/railway station interchange.

BBLB director David Greenhill said: ‘We have respected the character of the nearby conservation area and believe that this scheme will enrich the diversity of architecture in the area and become a memorable place to live, work and visit.’

Detailed design work is now underway and work is expected to begin on site in 2008.
