Bromwich Hardy has been appointed by Complex Development Projects, to advise on their plans for developing Leamington Spa’s Cultural Quarter.
Warwick District Council announced the appointment of development partner Complex Development Projects (CDP) to work with it on a master-plan for a ten year project to turn the town centre area just south of the River Leam into a ‘Creative Quarter’.
Brian Harrabin, CDP Director, said:
“The Old Town area needs major regeneration and the focus on creative industries will help to unlock the cultural and commercial potential of this area which is very much under-developed.
“Creative areas are organic and are ultimately made by people, not buildings. But you need the right environment to allow them to thrive.”
Due to its location near to the motorway network and mainline railway station, the Creative Quarter would provide a revamped ‘Southern Gateway’ for the town.
Landmarks within the area earmarked for improvement and development include the Pump Room Gardens, All Saints’ church, the Royal Mail Sorting Office and former post office, Spencer Yard, and Bath Place.
