Concept Stage Submission
Old Town Dock Newport three

Regeneration of Old Town Dock Newport, South Wales in conjunction with Newport City Homes and Robert Limbrick Architects. Residential development plus commercial and retail space.

This Concept Stage submission is for a new residential scheme for Newport City Homes at the Old Town Dock Site between East Docks Road and Usk way in Newport.

Part of the site along the east docks road frontage has previously been developed by Sennybridge and Pobl Group in c2016 with NJP providing structural design plus road and drainage design.

Newport City homes have bought the remainder of the site and are now progressing to a new full detailed planning application for c149no. new-build affordable dwellings, consisting of 1 and 2 bed apartments and 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses as well as c5000ft commercial unit which could be a potential convenience store.

The south-west corner of the site is being developed as a drive through Costa which has been permitted through separate planning application and does not form part of this particular application.

This document sets out the brief and vision, site analysis (with headings and information based on DcFW guidance) and development of options before moving onto the current stage of design proposals.
