Loughborough Eastern Gateway wins regional Regeneration Award
January 4th, 2013
At the 2012 Procon Awards the Loughborough Eastern Gateway, masterplanned and by Franklin Ellis Architects, was named Regeneration Scheme of the Year.
The £20m project included a new link road from Nottingham Road to Meadow Lane facilitating a new station forecourt and transport interchange, together with an affordable housing scheme of 91 units designed by FEA on behalf of Nottingham Community Housing Association (NCHA) and built by William Davis.
Judges praised Loughborough Eastern Gateway for its role as a catalyst for the total regeneration of the area, greatly enhancing the approach to the town via rail with these stylish, contemporary new buildings.
Councillor David Slater, leader of Charnwood Borough Council said: “The Eastern Gateway scheme not only improves the quality of life for local people, but it has made the eastern approach to Loughborough far more attractive and inviting to visitors. We’re absolutely delighted and proud to be part of this success.”
