Masterplan unveiled to put city on map
The masterplan for the regeneration of 2.9 hectares of land across Quayside and Blackfriars sites in Gloucester city has been revealed.
The joint proposal for the two sites, which are the size of four rugby pitches, have been drawn up by Gloucestershire County Council and Gloucester City Council, working in partnership with GFirst and the University of Gloucestershire.
Both councils have a strong track record in regenerating local areas and communities, securing over £700 million of investment over the past ten years resulting in 1,000 new jobs and 700 new homes.
This experience has been used to create 'one vision' for the redevelopment of the two sites in the city.
Architects Evans Jones have created a 3D fly through of how the Blackfriars and Quayside areas could look if a developer comes on board to deliver a residential scheme in the area.
The ambition is to put Gloucester on the map as a vibrant city with opportunities to boost the local economy and attract more visitors. To do this we are working with GFirst to attract up to £135 million of brand new investment into the Quayside and Blackfriars sites.
This masterplan is the starting point for determining how this area of the transformed.
