This was the masterplan for the redevelopment of Morecambe central promenade including retail, leisure, restaurants, cafes, and 533 residential units. There’s even plans for beach houses which open out directly to the promenade! Visit here to view full details of the CABE review.
Here’s the conclusion of the CABE report:
This project could potentially bring about a significant change in the public perception of Morecambe. We think that the scheme must justify its own existence by making a tangible and lasting positive contribution to the town, in addition to being a good piece of architecture in its own right. While we are mostly supportive of many of the principles of the masterplan, we think that the local authority should be satisfied that the design team have satisfactorily addressed the concerns outlined in this letter before giving planning consent.
