Shipyard Redevelopment of the River Weaver

  • 19 Sep 2016

Public consultation is underway for the redevelopment of Weaver Shipyard, Saxons Lane in Northwich.

Urban Green has developed Pre-Planning material on behalf of H2O Urban incorporating a masterplan which will see the boat marina, moorings and boat yard redeveloped and the construction of circa 96 residential units with associated infrastructure and open space. The masterplan provides a deliverable and sustainable proposal given the sensitive nature of the site and proximity to the River Weaver.

Urban Green has carried out extensive site appraisals, feasibility studies, planning policy reviews, a landscape and visual impact assessment, a townscape and local character assessment, arboriculture and ecology surveys and more recently bat surveys prior to the end of the season along with stakeholder consultation including Northwich Town Council, The Local Wildlife Trust and the Local Highway Authority.

Martin King, Director of Urban Green explains “We have worked closely with the project team to ensure the right approach and considerations are taken to this riverside setting. The outline masterplan presented is a combination of enhancements and improvements alongside development which we are seeking support following the consultation prior to a planning application.”
