I can provide advice on:

Carter Jonas’ masterplanning, planning and development teams were jointly appointed by Cannock Chase Council to undertake a six-month study in order to produce an urban regeneration framework and a market facing development prospectus for Cannock town centre.

Working in close collaboration with Cannock Chase Council and their town centre partners, the study involved five key phases of work: site analysis, evaluation of findings, design, consultation, and reporting. The completed town centre framework forms the basis for future regeneration projects, whilst the prospectus enables the council to actively engage with prospective investors and developers as it seeks joint venture partners for some sites and to dispose of other sites for development.
The combination of our design, planning and viability skills has enabled the team to create a series of development briefs for 12 sites which are planning conscious whilst being commercially savvy.
