The Urbanists to develop Wrexham corridor regeneration plan

The Urbanists have been appointed by Wrexham County Borough Council and Welsh Government to carry out a feasibility study into the future placemaking and development opportunities along the Mold Road Corridor. 

Wrexham is a key regional driver for North East Wales and Mold Road is an important arterial route into the town. The significance of the route is derived from the presence of Wrexham’s Glyndwr University, The Racecourse stadium and Wrexham General railway station. 

The challenge will be to devise and coordinate interventions that will make a considerable beneficial impact upon Wrexham and the wider region. The vision will be supported by a masterplan which will be underpinned by deliverable interventions set into a short, medium and long term delivery plan.

The Urbanists are leading the project and are being supported by Colliers on property inputs and Mott Macdonald on transportation advice.
