English Partnerships has received detailed proposals from the three consortia in the competition to breathe new life into the former coal- mining village of Allerton Bywater

English Partnerships has received detailed proposals from the three consortia in the competition to breathe new life into the former coal- mining village of Allerton Bywater. The consortia are presenting their ideas today - Bellway Urban Renewal and Yorkshire Water (top), Daniel Libeskind (middle) and The Aire Regeneration Partnership (bottom). Bellway is working with masterplanner edaw, Ian Derby Partnership, Timpson Manley and Stephenson Bell; Libeskind with Allen Tod and Alan Baxter Associates; and Aire with Aire Design and Dewhurst Macfarlane and Partners. Details are so far sketchy, but Libeskind is proposing 'The Weave' or a 'three- dimensional tapestry' of community culture and nature, including a marketplace area, an 'engine-house workplace' for environmental growth industries, and 750 live/work units delivered through a trust. edaw's masterplan for Bellway aims to increase connectivity with new emphasised public-transport routes, cycleways and paths, including 'solar villas', sports areas, new water gardens and an 'environmental classroom'. Aire Design did not provide details of its approach.
