Multi-million pound transformation for Crewe Town Centre

Crewe Town Centre is to benefit from a multi-million pound renaissance of its Royal Arcade to transform it into a retail and leisure destination. The £30m mixed use retail and leisure

scheme, supported by a 450 space multi- story car park and a new Gateway bus station, will offer more than 90,000sq ft of retail space in addition to an eight screen

£15m of lottery funding for Burrell Collection

The National Lottery has awarded £15m for the refurbishment of the Burrell Collection in Glasgow. The funding marks a key milestone for

the Burrell Collection which will see the museum and its collection undergo a refurbishment of the building and redisplay of almost 9,000 objects. The Burrell Collection closed to the

public in October 2016, allowing work to commence on the £66m refurbishment of the Grade A category building. By optimising spaces and visitor circulation

throughout the museum, the scheme will open up all three floors of the building whilst protecting and enhancing the 1983 Grade A listed building's architectural integrity. Only 20 per cent of the collection is on

display. Flexible displays for the rotation of artworks and new spaces for temporary exhibitions will allow much more of the collection to be displayed. The entire collection will be accessible digitally, collection stores will open to the public for the first time, and a new dedicated space for special exhibitions will be created. By

capitalising on Burrell’s park setting, landscaped terraces will also connect the museum to the surroundings of Pollok Country Park. The refurbishment will also repair the

fabric of the building, improving its sustainability, transforming it from a building with a large carbon footprint into an energy-efficient, modern museum. The Burrell Renaissance has raised more

than 80 per cent of the project costs to date with Glasgow City Council agreeing to fund up to 50 per cent of the overall project cost and further income secured and pledged from more than 100 different supporters. 7

cinema, associated leisure uses, gym, and five restaurant units. Cheshire East Council has appointed

Cordwell Property Group and Peveril Securities, part of the Bowmer and Kirkland construction and development group, as their development partners for the Royal Arcade. The Arcade development has been

designed by Corstorphine + Wright and will encourage pedestrian flow through a regenerated town centre. The council will invest a further £7.6m in public realm works. Discussions are underway with a leading

cinema, gym operator and restaurants for the scheme, which should start on site in 2018 subject to planning with completion due in 2020.
