The Canal Quarter Regeneration Zone

Our adopted Core Strategy sets out the policy basis for the regeneration of the Canal Quarter in Stratford-upon-Avon (Proposal SUA.1). The Canal Quarter is composed of land next to the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal at Western Road, Wharf Road, Timothy's Bridge Road and Masons Road on the edge of the town centre.

The proposal seeks to redevelop existing industrial and commercial land to deliver up to 650 new homes, 9,000 square metres of employment premises, a linear park alongside the canal and a multi-purpose community facility (if required).

Current progress

We are currently preparing a supplementary planning document to guide developers and planners in achieving environmental, social, economic and design objectives as they seek to regenerate the Canal Quarter.

View the Canal Quarter technical evidence page for urban design analysis, focusing on the key design principles for the Canal Quarter.

The draft SPD will be available for public consultation between 1st February and 5.00pm on 16th March 2018.
