Historic Quarter

The Historic Quarter boasts numerous important late 19th century buildings within a designated Conservation Area, with the potential to provide high quality commercial and residential accommodation.

The establishment of an Enterprise Zone across the Historic Quarter incentivises private investment and has been designed to target the key gateway between Middlehaven and the town centre, providing the linkage between the primary amenities of the town and the opportunities presented by the wider Middlehaven.

Work is under way on the development of a railway station area masterplan, outlining the necessary improvements for enhanced services, as well as the regeneration of the secondary areas.

The land surrounding the railway station has the potential to create a new urban living experience, with opportunities for bespoke housing. There are currently significant areas of development-ready land nearby and this presents a major investment opportunity.
