A consortium of landscape and urban designers, regeneration consultants and architects has been selected for a wide-reaching regeneration project in Cumbria.
Consultancy firm Royal Haskoning will head consultants under a framework agreement with urban regeneration company West Lakes Renaissance (WLR).
The consortium will bid for various individual projects along the coastal strip to the west of the Lake District from Barrow in the south to Silloth in the north. These will include the regeneration of the Whitehaven area, to include sports facilities and town centre infrastructure. Barrow, Workington, Maryport and Harrington will also be redeveloped as well as a new university campus for the county.
The consortium includes regeneration consultant DTZ, architect Green Design Group and urban designer Insite Environments.
Royal Haskoning framework director Peter Gallagher said: “We are delighted to contribute towards tangible and sustainable improvements for West Cumbrian communities over the next few years.”
To support its role, Royal Haskoning plans to open a new office in the Whitehaven area.
WLR has appointed a second multi-discipline consortium, headed by White Young Green. The aim of having two consortia working on the plan is to reduce time taken to initiate and complete projects.
