    Loushers Lane Residential Scheme

    A new vision
    “Warrington means business,” says local councillor Terry O’Neill on the future of Warrington and its economic growth. Warrington Borough Council decided to revamp the town’s infrastructure with a series of new developments. The masterplan, called Time Square, will revamp the town centre with offices, shops, restaurants and a cinema. A short distance away, just north of Loushers Lane, is a new residential area. This 6.5-ha site forms part of the Southern Gateway development area that will link to the town centre.

    Delivering the future
    RSK produced a landscape framework and development plan to provide an overall structure for the residential development. The framework also included character areas, land take, open spaces, infrastructure, ecological opportunities and responses to existing landscape features. The information formed the basis for the site layout and RSK keenly collaborated with project architects, ecologists, arboriculturalists and other specialist consultants.

    Taking all this information into account, the development scheme was reduced from 159 to 128 units. RSK highlighted existing constraints that could not be worked around. While the overall aim was to help create the infrastructure to support a new and vibrant community, RSK put the theme of sustainability at the forefront of its efforts, which meant reducing the number of residential units for the area.
