New Bolton Woods, Bradford

Urbo has been working since 2005 alongside Bradford Council to masterplan and deliver a revitalized Canal Road corridor between Shipley and Bradford City Centre. Urbo and the Council are working in partnership to deliver the central area comprising some 80 ha (200 acres) of land. This part of the canal corridor forms a large triangle of land focused around two transport hubs and a new mixed-use development at Bolton Woods. The development will comprise up to 1,250 new houses and a new Local Centre with food store, shops and other facilities. The development will form a new sustainable settlement with an end value in excess of £250m.

Urbo and Bradford successfully completed on a Public-Private Partnership in November 2010 and have worked with urban designers Urbed on a detailed masterplan. An outline planning application is scheduled for Spring 2014.

A first phase of 139 architect designed houses on allocated residential land was granted planning consent early in 2013 and started on site in Autumn with completions from early 2014 onwards.
