Key LRC development received planning go ahead.

A Planning application, which will kick-start one of the Leicester Regeneration Company’s (LRC) key projects was approved by Leicester City Council at a meeting held on Tuesday.

Westbridge Wharf, on the riverside in Bath Lane, will consist of 113 apartments, ranging from studio flats to penthouses and will include a restaurant and residents Health Centre. LRC have been one of several partners, including Leicester City Council, developers Living in the City, and Jonathon Smith Architects, working to ensure that the scheme is appropriate both for the area and fits in with the masterplan for regeneration of the city over the next ten to fifteen years.

Caroline Simpson-Watkinson, Development Manager at LRC said ‘We are delighted that this scheme has received planning permission. It will be the first development in our waterside target area, and is a great first step towards our masterplan’s aim of waterside regeneration, which will ultimately reunite the city centre and riverside. It will add vibrancy to the ten miles of underused waterfront in central Leicester, and is an excellent example of a number of parties working together to ensure a scheme which meets all their aims.’
