BBLB Architects' £45 million scheme to redevelop a strategic site at the gateway to Stratford-upon-Avon has been given the go-ahead.
The 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.by Max Thompson
