Plans are designed to enhance the river ecology as well as the amenity of the river and will also help to regenerate the other links across the Abbey Park and Ruins. Current landowners with retail operations on site have bought in to the concepts suggested to develop the mixed use building typologies proposed in the Framework, potentially bringing forward in the region of 5,000 new homes.
