LDY denies it has been cast out in Bath

  • Comment
Llewelyn Davies Yeang (LDY) has hit back at rumours it has been ousted from the Bath Western Riverside scheme.

According to some reports the practice, which was named as the lead architect of the massive regeneration scheme in the heart of the city, has been replaced by Bath-based firm Feilden Clegg Bradley (FCB).

However, the AJ has learned that the local practice has only been asked to design the housing element of the project and that LDY will continue to head up the development.

Steve Featherstone, LDY's managing director, said: 'Llewelyn Davies Yeang was appointed lead masterplanner on Bath Western Riverside in January 2004 and we remain lead masterplanner for the scheme.

He added: 'As lead masterplanner, we will be working with FCB, who have been appointed to submit a planning application for the residential aspect of the scheme next year.'

FCB are currently drawing up plans for Crest Nicholson and Bath and North West Somerset Council for a 14ha city-centre, brownfield site, which will provide 2,000-3,000 dwellings.
