Stoke-on-Trent landscape design projects worth £2m

A £40m regeneration project in Stoke-on-Trent's city centre will provide around £2m of landscape design work in its implementation.

The council is looking for a multi-disciplinary team that can develop a public realm design covering around 8,000sq m. It is expected that an experienced landscape designer will lead a consortium, which will include civil engineers specialising in utilities design, ground conditions and remediation, highway design and the design of pedestrian environments, along with a cost estimator to ensure the design and specification meet budgets.

The landscape design contract is expected to run for four years, with an option to extend for a further four years, and will be subject to performance reviews relating to individual phases. Its estimated value is £1.5m to £2m and the deadline is 4 November.

An £80,000 contract for a multi-disciplinary team to develop a masterplan for Longton Town Centre in the south of Stoke-on-Trent is also available.

The work is being led by the North Staffordshire Regeneration Partnership, established in 2007 to help regenerate a large, under-performing area. Longton is the southernmost of the six historic towns that make up Stoke-on-Trent and is the second largest centre after the city centre. From being a village 200 years ago, the town has grown to have a catchment area of 80,000 people. The deadline for this contract is 15 October.
