NORTH QUAY AREA SPD, GREAT YARMOUTH

CCL, working with Urban Delivery prepared the North Quay Area Supplementary Planning Document for Great Yarmouth Borough Council.

The commission focused on the preparation of a concept and development feasibility masterplan for the 4 Ha waterside mixed industrial and residential area at a critical location between Great Yarmouth Town Centre and the main railway station. The area has been under-utilised for many years and represents a key development opportunity and high profile gateway for the town.

The Masterplan established and tested indicative scheme layouts and development forms to ensure the overall quality and fit of the proposed extension to the identified (and latent) market demand.

The SPD was drafted subject to public consultation and wider engagement and then finalised together with delivery and viability advice for the Council to support a comprehensive regeneration programme and creation of an appropriate development vehicle to drive delivery of circa 350 new homes and related new open spaces, waterfront walkways, public squares and an enhanced level of connectivity for the town centre and railway station.
