Newport to get a facelift

Feilden Clegg Bradley Architects has been appointed to take on a large swathe of rundown Newport, South Wales.

The practice, with developer Westmark, is set to draw up detailed designs for this £20m regeneration scheme next to the Old Town Dock.

The Welsh Development Agency-backed scheme will include 151 new apartments within a new 'waterside park'.

Graham Moore, chief executive of regeneration agency Newport Unlimited, claimed the scheme was significant for the region. He said: 'This is an important development for Newport as it will set a new quality benchmark that will inform the future phases of development in Old Town Dock and Newport as a whole.

'Our masterplan calls for a more sustainable city where people can live closer to the places where they work and shop and the new residential development at Old Town Dock, which is less than five minutes walking distance from the city, will help deliver this,' he added.

Work is scheduled to begin on site in June 2006.
