The Ashington Investment Plan sets out Arch’s ten year regeneration programme which will invest around £74m and bring over 1,000 high-quality jobs to the heart of Ashington. The masterplan is to redevelop the “North East Quarter” of the town centre, building upon the construction of the new Ashington Leisure Centre scheme.
Portland Park is Northumberland County Council’s major regeneration site in the heart of the town. Phase one will create a new road network and consultation is underway to confirm the mix of facilities within the masterplan.
One Environments are responsible for developing the landscape proposals to the masterplan. Informed by the key principles outlined in the client requirements and design brief landscape proposals will create a legible, vibrant and sustainable townscape with a clearly defined street pattern designed to provide a low-speed, mixed pedestrian and cycle-friendly environment. These key routes will be spacious and attractive without barriers providing safe and direct access between the proposed buildings, facilities, public transport network and the wider townscape.
