LDA to redevelop waterfront site

Plans to regenerate waterfront site to create access to river on Isle of Wight.

LDA Design is to lead the redevelopment of a derelict riverside site on the Isle of Wight. West Medina Mills, a 6.2ha brownfield site in Newport that was once a port for the cement and aggregates industry, is set to become a waterfront site for businesses needing access to the river. LDA Design director of community regeneration Neil Homer said: “This is a really exciting opportunity to produce an exemplary green development for the Isle of Wight. The plan will balance biodiversity gains with the need for economic regeneration in the Medina Valley.” West Medina Mills is one of three major sites on the island to make up the Cowes Waterfront Initiative, which aims to strengthen the island’s marine sector facilities. LDA will be submitting the planning application for the site.
