New plans submitted for Norwich regeneration project
25th April 2022

Broadway Malyan and developer Weston Homes have submitted new proposals for a comprehensive redevelopment of a key city centre site in Norwich.

The completely revised scheme for Anglia Square aims to create a new place to live which will sustain and enhance the existing retail uses, significantly improve the public realm and pedestrian links to the wider neighbourhood, and create a new residential heart, of eventually up to 1,100 homes.

The full proposal will bring forward a replacement local centre complete with 8,000sqm of flexible retail and business space, provide a brand-new Community Hub for local use, new cycling routes and two new public squares, as well as up to 450 car parking spaces, car club spaces and improvements to existing highways and public realm.

The new homes will include a mix of townhouses and apartments with heights across the site ranging from three to eight storeys with a variety of tenures types, designed to offer a mix of homes for all.

The scheme’s masterplan was derived from analysis of the historic, pre-war layout with a focus on a recreation the old Botolph street route and an overall increase of permeability across the site, with newly accessible through-routes facilitating better movement into surrounding communities and Norwich city centre.

“This resident-led proposal for the future Anglia Square site is a unique opportunity to regenerate this important site and affords the potential to deliver a significant and positive addition to the city.”
