In line with the Lower Ouseburn Regeneration Strategy and the Lower Ouseburn Valley Conservation Area Character Statement, our framework for Ouseburn Valley continues to grow the urban village that has evolved over time.
As a designated Conservation Area, unique heritage features will be preserved and enhanced to create a vibrant townscape, blending Ouseburn’s long and varied history with high quality design. Sustainable development is seen as an integral part of Igloos approach to the regeneration of Ouseburn, to encourage a balanced mix of land uses and meet the economic and social needs of existing and future communities. Clearly our first phase focuses on building synergy between the Toffee Factory and the East Bank. Both of these projects will be catalysts for change in the area – bringing new enterprise and setting a benchmark for residential quality.
