Mere Green :: Sutton Coldfield

Mere Green

The scheme aimed to put the heart back into Mere Green by creating a new centre that would attract residents and visitors into the locality. Extensive urban design studies and research into the historic buildings in the wider area informed the evolution of the mixed use scheme of retail, offices, community facilities and 160 residential units. New pedestrianisation and landscaping improved connectivity and amenity to contribute to legibility and a sense of place. The residential accommodation introduced a mix of 30% affordable units to the town centre.
