PRD developed a Masterplan for Runcorn’s Station Quarter as part of a multidisciplinary team. The Masterplan will play a key role in catalysing wider regeneration in Runcorn (including the town centre) and harnessing the regeneration potential that HS2 presents. However, the Masterplan also faces and addresses several delivery challenges and constraints, including multiple land ownerships, safeguarded land and challenging local property market economics.
PRD’s input into the Masterplan included establishing an in-depth contextual market baseline of local and regional property market economics developed through analysis of comparable and transactional data as well as consultations with agents, key public-sector stakeholders, landowners and key leaseholders. PRD also appraised the development options for the emerging Masterplan which includes consideration of how the Council can use its assets to deliver the Masterplan and stimulate wider investment in the area.
