Coalville, Stoke on Trent, 2004—present
Axis design were appointed by the Coalville Partnership in January 2004 after winning the competitive tender for the remodelling of the estate consisting of 400 coal board houses dating from the 1950’s.
Axis undertook a programme of intensive community consultation with local residents which included setting up a dedicated residents website and running a neighbourhood office on the estate, along with open days and regular newsletters.
The concept plan drawn up for Coalville involves substantial stock clearance, the formation of an extensive linear park, SUDS and the construction of approx 200 new houses.
The objective is to create a positive vision for a future Coalville which will be a high quality, desirable, mixed tenure residential area with wider housing choice to attract house buyers from a range of income groups.
Axis also coordinated a partnership simulation day to provide a framework for the delivery of the project based on a 5—year attainment plan for key players and organizations.
