Roundup of 2022
Our Team is growing
2022 has been another successful year for the practice with a wide variety of projects ranging from 18 fully wheelchair accessible apartments in Birmingham to a £40m PRS development in Sheffield city centre.
We were particularly delighted to gain planning permission this month for a truly mixed use, community scheme in Liversedge, West Yorkshire. Incorporating a new church, coffee bar, restaurant and roof top garden, residents who embrace Methodist values, will live in the 22 apartments above. This community hub will be open to local people regardless of their religion and it is hoped will provide a blueprint for subsequent schemes throughout the country.
We look forward to 2023 and start of the year with our new company logo.
Health and Well Being Hub
We are pleased to announce that due to increased workloads two new members of staff have recently joined Acanthus WSM.
Both graduates of Leeds Becket University, Marcus Cornelison and Sam Peacock have hit the ground running and are welcome additions to the team.
Acanthus WSM have been approached by the Keighley Green Space Campaign Group to prepare design proposals for a new Health and Well Being Hub.
The group are fighting proposals to develop a current open space in the town centre and have secured a public vote on the 21st July.
Their preferred location for the hub is a brownfield site between Church Street and Beck Street.
Developing here would allow the open space adjacent to North Street to be enhanced for a variety of uses.
Acanthus WSM are currently preparing proposals for this recreational area that include an open performance amphitheatre, street café and memorial rose garden dedicated to Sir Tom Moore who was born and grew up in the town.
