Cobalt Housing is recruiting an architect to remasterplan the Stonedale Crescent area of Croxteth, Liverpool
The winner of the estimated £120,000-to-£140,000 contract will create a high-level masterplan and complete an initial option appraisal exercise for the neighbourhood, which is on the northern fringes of the city.
The project aims to improve living standards for residents of the Stonedale Crescent estate, which was awarded a £415,000 government regeneration grant earlier this year.
According to the brief: ‘The requirement is for a high-level masterplan, with appropriate costs, to be available by September 2018. The masterplan will need to be developed with the early and continuous engagement of partners, stakeholders, residents and the wider community.
‘We will be looking to award this commission as soon as possible after the conclusion of a fair and robust evaluation. We will then be looking to initially engage with the winning bidder immediately.’
The suburb of Croxteth is about 8km north-east of Liverpool city centre and features a large number of post-war houses built for local skilled workers and families relocated during construction of the Mersey Tunnel.
Stonedale Crescent is a small housing estate sitting between West Derby Cemetery, a retail park and a large open green space.
In the past 15 years, large numbers of homes, including several tower blocks, have been demolished in the area to make way for new housing.
The deadline for applications is 8 December.
