Residents help to choose architects for Phase 2

An interview panel that included two residents has chosen the architects who will design and prepare the planning application for Phase 2 of the regeneration of Wornington Green.

The panel selected Conran and Partners as the winning architects after a selection process where the panel considered the team who would work on the project and their experience of high quality, mixed tenure housing projects.

The two resident panel members, Karina Skinner and Maria Gulston, consulted the wider Residents’ Steering Group Committee on their priorities and were supported by the Independent Tenants Advisor, Mekor Newman.

Conor Kilbane, Regeneration Manager and fellow panel member, said: “The presentations from all the bidders were of a very high standard as you would expect for such a major high profile regeneration scheme. I must say both Maria and Karina were fantastic. Their approach to the whole day was professional. Their preparation for the interviews was obvious. I appreciate that the Residents’ Steering Group sat behind this and informed their contribution so I am also grateful for their involvement.”

Look out for details of forthcoming public events to give you a chance to meet Conran and Partners and comment on the designs.
