Lakeside Park, Brynmawr

A joint venture with Deeley Freed Estates for a major urban regeneration project on the site of the former Dunlop Semtex factory. The building was an icon in architectural and engineering fileds as it was the largest concrete framed building in Europe when constructed. When Chelverton became involved the site was heavily contaminated and had been subject to various abortive attempts to have the area redeveloped into a comprehensive residential and retail scheme such that it linked into the existing Town centre. Chelverton worked with the WDA and Brynmawr County Borough Council to redevelop the site for an Asda store of 8,100 sq m and an additional 3,200 sqm of unrestricted non food retail space with good pedestrian links to the Town Centre. The scheme moved from initial landowner meetings, scheme inception, planning to a start on site within just over 12 months.
