Gypsey Race Urban Park
The Gypsey Race is the most northerly winterbourne chalk stream in the UK. Within the extents of the town of Bridlington, the Gypsey Race is partly culverted and hidden behind existing dwellings, offices and mills.
The regeneration strategy focuses on opening up the Gypsey Race to provide users with a diverse range of experiences along the length of the river. The river environs will be landscaped to bring significant green infrastructure into the town centre, acting as an enhanced wildlife corridor and attractive backdrop for high-value development and leisure activity.
The proposed linear park will focus on biodiversity, community engagement, development opportunity and play. The scheme will also offer opportunities for small businesses through the provision of kiosks as well as improving links to new and existing employment areas.
The project supports natural regeneration techniques within the proposed landscape to maximise ecological benefits. Where this is not achievable, sustainable green engineering solutions are to be implemented and supplemented with ecological planting.
Our landscape solutions for this project include:
- Outline design
- Detailed design
- Stakeholder engagement
- Ecology & habitat creation
