Bold Power Station, St Helens


Value: £3.5 million

The reclamation of a 34-hectare former power station in St. Helens for high-grade residential development and public open space was carried out in a partnering arrangement with Land Regeneration Management (LRM) on an integrated design and build basis.

The VHE-LRM joint venture was also responsible for planning the project and the sale of the reclaimed land.

The regeneration plan involved:

  • The creation of a landscape infrastructure to provide an attractive framework for redevelopment
  • The utilisation of existing watercourses to create new water features, lakes and streams
  • The construction of a road layout involving a primary distributor road and secondary estate roads
  • Footpaths and cycleway networks to enable areas of the site to be used as public open space as a recreational/leisure amenity

The work involved a sustainable approach to regeneration using materials recycled from the foundation arisings and clean cohesive materials. A total of 16ha of land for residential developments and 18ha of public open space were created.
