New country park business planning and country park masterplan

New Country Park Feasibility StudyClient: Homes and Communities Agency
Working in a multi-disciplinary team we carried out a feasibility study to regenerate a former 190 hectare coalfield located on a Green Belt site in Wigan into a country park (Bickershaw Country Park).  A key component of the work was to create a green oasis with zoning to incorporate a nature based offer, links with the local canal network and an emphasis on improving the health and wellbeing of residents. Our work included detailed market research, bench-marking, consultation and preparing the supporting business plan.
