Cromwell Road


City development sites and projects underway by CIP

Cromwell Road

Cromwell Road is a new housing development in the heart of the city. This is the largest scheme in the CIP pipeline and will deliver a mix of flats and houses both for market sale and for council rent. In addition, the development will provide a new open space and community facilities.

Building on the former Ridgeons site, Cromwell Road will enhance the cityscape and bring brownfield land into beneficial use.

Homes: 295

Cromwell Road will be a mixed tenure scheme with 177 new homes for private sale and 118 council rented homes. In addition, facilities will be provided for an early years or community medical facility. The new park will incorporate sustainable drainage features and be linked to the Chisholm trail.

Architect: Pollard Thomas Edwards

Landscape: The Environment Partnership

Sustainability: Green features include high fabric performance, photovoltaic solar panels, rainwater gardens, swales, green roofs, reduced water consumption (110 litres per person per day), 19% carbon emission reduction on part L of Building Regulations (2013). The Community Centre will be built to BREEAM Very Good standard.
