Becket Well, Derby

  • Project: Contextual Study
  • Client: Derby Cityscape URC

Lathams were commissioned by Derby Cityscape URC to produce a detailed study of the Becket Well site.Becket Well is long neglected and undeveloped hole in the heart of the urban fabric of Derby city centre and a priority project identified within the Cityscape Masterplan. The study included a layered set of surveys including policy, land use, access, ownership, topography, historic development and others. This material was analysed and used to compile a set of development principles which could be used to guide the content of follow on technical and financial modelling.

The study concludes with a set of conceptual development options. These respond to the development principles as agreed with Cityscape and also high level commercial market and delivery advice.

The study will be employed to help to guide and inform delivery and policy within the site.
