Masterplanner sought for Wigan estate renewal

Worsley Mesnes
  • Comment

Wigan and Leigh Homes is seeking a masterplanner for the regeneration of its Worsley Mesnes Estate

The winner of the £80,000 contract will draw up a range of masterplan options for the estate which was constructed in the 1960s.

Located around 1.5 kilometres south west of Wigan town centre, the area was home to several farms and collieries before the estate was constructed.

A number of prefabricated towers and maisonette blocks built as part of the original Worsley Mesnes Estate were demolished in the 1980s and 1990s.

Existing community facilities on the estate include two primary schools but other 1960s buildings such as The Wheel pub (pictured, above) and Phoenix Centre are now disused.

Other nearby landmarks include the modernist St Jude’s Church designed by LAG Prichard, the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, and the Wigan Flashes nature reserve.

The deadline for applications is 5pm 26 August.
