Project: Shrewsbury River Study

 

Client: Shropshire Council

Working with the River Regeneration Group, Pleydell Smithyman Limited completed a comprehensive environmental, economic and leisure feasibility study for the main river corridor within Shrewsbury. Using our multi-disciplinary expertise, our approach has been to develop a balanced and integrated framework to enable long term and incremental improvements without compromising the tranquillity and sensitivity of the river environment.

Our brief was not only to find technical solutions but to provide an aspirational strategy to breathe new life into derelict buildings, create new habitats for wildlife and extend recreational and tourism opportunities through a strategy of landscape and environmental improvements.
