Grange over Sands Regeneration - Grange-over-Sands promenade - where once there was water

We were commissioned by South Lakeland District Council as part of the Douglas Wheeler Associates team to produce a Grange over Sands Regeneration for this striking resort town. The overall aim of the work was to improve Grange over Sands as a key service centre and to increase its attractiveness to the local community and to visitors. The proposals were part of the South Lakeland Development Framework Core Strategy.

The main objectives of the Regeneration Strategy were to prepare an analysis of the relevant background documents, assess the development potential of the Berners Pool/Lido site including the preparation of a financial appraisal indicating the costs and values and the capital receipt available for improvements to the promenade based on a number of land use options. In addition, we were asked to consider development opportunities in the town centre for new community and retail facilities.

These are some of the proposals for the town:

The lead consultants for this work were Douglas Wheeler Associates. Property advice is supplied by Carigiet Cowan
