Everards Meadows – located on land south of Soar Valley Way, Enderby, Leicestershire – comprises a new home for Everards Brewery, a café/bar and cycle centre together with extensive areas of green infrastructure extending down to the River Soar. FPCR carried out extensive surveys and prepared the original opportunities and constraints analysis for the scheme as well as being lead designers during the outline planning stage.
Following outline approval, FPCR were appointed the landscape consultants to Everards Brewery for the design, implementation and management of the landscape framework. The extensive green infrastructure proposals include detailed landscape proposals for the new development together with approximately 30 Ha of greenspace being opened up for public access in the Soar Valley floodplain. As part of the new access arrangements a new footway/ cycle bridge has been constructed over the River Soar connecting with the national sustrans pedestrian and cycleway enabling easy travel into the City of Leicester.
The Practice has also provided Arboricultural Assessments and detailed Arboricultural Method Statements for the scheme.
The Everards Meadows Phase 1 scheme won the ProCon Leicestershire award for Regeneration Project of the Year 2019.
