We’re excited to announce that we are now working with North Leigh Park Group on the branding of their latest comprehensive regeneration in Wigan.
North Leigh Park Group has extensive experience in social and community-based regeneration including the sympathetic revival of inner-city and brownfield derelict sites.
North Leigh is the only Key Strategic Site in the Borough allocated for housing in Wigan’s Core Strategy. The scheme will see a major inward investment of around £310 million to the benefit of the local areas of Leigh and Hindley and will act as a catalyst to further economic growth to the Wigan Borough.
The brownfield site is currently scarred by the remnants of its heavy mining and industrial past, including open cast quarries, landfills, over thirty mine shafts, colliery spoil waste tips, scrap yard uses and former sewage treatment works. North Leigh Park Group will comprehensively remediate these hazards and contamination to provide a safer, cleaner, more sustainable environment.
The proposals include the delivery of 1,800 quality new homes that form part of Wigan Council’s future housing supply, 51,000 square metres of new employment space, approximately 19 hectares (47 acres) of improved strategic green infrastructure and a Local Centre with community and retail uses. Construction and permanent jobs will be created for local people.
We will be responsible for branding this new and exciting development, including place-making and establishing its identity. We will be building on the heritage of the site to capture the spirit of this new community.
