Sheriff's Gate Ltd.
Planning Consultants on behalf of Sherriffs Street Ltd for a major Urban Regeneration scheme at Shurb Hill, Worcester, following a 2 year consultation process.
This is the first site to come forward following adoption of the Worcester City Masterplan, 2010 and is subject to a Planning Performance Agreement with the Authority. The application is a hybrid full and outline submission that will see a phased development of:
- 335 new dwellings for affordable and private sale, extra care, student and keyworker housing
- 12,000sqm of Commercial space
- 9,000sqm of Business space
- a 99 bed hotel
- 580 space multi-storey car park, part of which will help relieve passenger parking problems
around the listed Shrub Hill Station.
Traffic calming will be organised in a new traffic gyratory system and a shared access route through the development for improved pedestrian and bus access, relieving a railway tunnel bottleneck.
600 new jobs will be created in this ambitious and visionary development that will include cutting edge sustainable design techniques.
