Cowley Hill, St Helens
A redevelopment proposal to regenerate 104 acres of redundant land at the Cowley Hill Works, St Helens. Including masterplanning, architectural and urban design for a phased delivery of 1,200 homes and up to 4,700 sqm of leisure, commercial and retail space including a 100 bed hotel.
The Cowley Hill Works is the largest brownfield allocation within the emerging St Helens Borough Council Local Development Plan. The proposal includes a mix of residential homes and associated infrastructure to create a new urban community for the town, key to its regeneration.
Amongst the 1,200 homes there will be a mix of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom detached, semi and town houses, with 2 or 3 storey apartments for sale and rent at key gateway locations within the development.
The site also allows for a high number of connected green spaces, pedestrian links and greenways to connect to Victoria Park and makes provision for areas of wildlife and water habitats.
