The Westfield Masterplan is a unique innovation in the restoration and development of one of Europe’s largest brownfield sites.
Westfield offers some unique redevelopment challenges and its restoration has been discussed over many years. Hargreaves believe that with proper investment, the site location, scale and unique features can be exploited to create a visionary and innovative regeneration and development project.
Hargreaves’ proposals take an integrated approach to regenerating this historically impacted site. They will improve the biodiversity of the site, increase public accessibility and incorporate a range of renewable energy systems, including energy recovery from residual waste. This energy can then support other development proposals and a range of new business opportunities.
Hargreaves intends to submit a planning application for Planning Permission in Principle in summer 2016. If approved, it is anticipated that planning conditions will be discharged in the first half of 2017 with restoration and development work commencing on site later in that year.
