Stoke on Trent is seeking architects to masterplan the regeneration of Stoke Town including the development of a 4ha historic pottery site
The North Staffordshire Regeneration Partnership this week unveiled the ambitious project which is part of the region’s £1.5 billion redevelopment.
Spode Works on Elenora Street, Stoke will become a mixed-use development aimed at regenerating Stoke Town. The site has been a pottery since 1776 and features Grade II-listed buildings.
They are seeking multi disciplinary teams of architects, engineers and environmental experts to draw up the masterplan.
Kevin Bell, Stoke town regeneration manager, said: ‘Stoke Town enjoys a wealth of industrial heritage, has great connections with the University Quarter and Stoke railway station and is the civic heart of the city.
‘We are taking an aspirational approach to the town and looking to attract high profile architects and designers to create a scheme that breathes new life in to the area.
‘Inspired design can generate quality solutions to attract the investment needed to develop a thriving town full of opportunity.’
Teams have until 12 April to submit expressions of interest through the Local Government eTendering Service at www.wmcoe.bravosolution.co.uk.
The short-listed teams will then be announced in early May.
