Work on LRC's Waterside project starts

Work has started this week on waterside developments, one of the Leicester Regeneration Company’s masterplan projects.

Consultants White Young Green have been appointed to carry out a detailed study in the Frog Island area of the city, to investigate the practicalities of developing the proposed the marina here. The environmental condition of the area will also be investigated as it may have been affected due to prolonged periods of industry around Frog Island. This is the first stage of investigations in the area and these findings will provide the preliminary basis for future waterside designs.

Development Manager Caroline Simpson Watkinson said ‘We are delighted to have appointed White Young Green and look forward to receiving their findings. This is the first step in defining plans for the city’s waterfront, but is very significant as it will inform us on future developments and indeed the location of the proposed marina.’

White Young Green Associate, Kevin Raven said ‘This investigation is key to the future plans of the LRC. We will be investigating thoroughly the land in Frog Island and identifying what impact the presence of industry has had over the last fifty years. Future plans will ensure that improving the environmental condition of this area is paramount, and we look forward to working with the LRC in making this happen.’

Developing the waterside is one of five key projects identified in the Leicester Regeneration Company masterplan, which was launched last year. For more information on the work of the Leicester Regeneration Company, please visit leicesterregeneration.co.uk or call .
