Walton Locks, Warrington, progress report

Our Walton Locks project with David Wilson Homes is progressing well.  The site, comprising of 250 units ranging from 2 bed to 4 bed family houses, sits on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal.

Apartment blocks C and D are now fully complete and occupied while apartment block E is currently nearing completion.  Planning Approval has also been recently obtained for the remaining apartment blocks and for revised houses.

CB3 Design were initially appointed to prepare revised Planning Applications for two apartment blocks and several houses on the site.  We were able to prepare a scheme that added commercial value for the client, yet in the form of a site responsive solution which reflects the context of the site and helps to create a real sense of place.

Further work has included the redesign and master-planning of approximately half of the site to create a development with improved public realm, more presence and connection to the waterfront, linear park and the Trans-Pennine trail which runs through the site.  We have gone on to prepare technical drawings and provide on-site support.  We are currently preparing construction packages for the blocks which are being constructed on a rolling programme.

Sales details are available from the David Wilson Homes website.
