Whitelaw Turkington to aid regeneration of mining village

Whitelaw Turkington has been appointed to form part of a design team that will deliver the regeneration of a 1960s housing estate in a former mining village in Yorkshire.

The landscape architecture firm will design more than 2.5ha of green space around the proposed 900-home development at the Reema Estate, in Thurnscoe. Green spaces will be used to encourage recreation, including play areas, circular walks and links to the wider countryside networks, as well as informal games and sports areas.

Urban renewal firm Compendium Group is leading the scheme to invest more than £100m into the former Reema Estate over the next 15 years.

Whitelaw Turkington director Guy Denton said: "We're determined to create spaces that not only serve the local community, but also reach beyond their boundaries and promote the location's ties to the beautiful Yorkshire countryside."

Phase one of the project, which accounts for the development of 120 houses, will begin next year.
