This is one of the most significant regeneration projects to have taken place in Northern Ireland since the Good Friday Agreement. The design and planning of a new town centre has not been undertaken in recent times and represents one of the most ambitious programmes to transform a problematic urban area.

The project has resulted in a strategic, long-term spatial plan that will bring about transformation in a highly deprived area. A thorough understanding of the site resulted in innovative design responses. A SuDS (sustainable urban drainage solution) strategy uses the steepness of a park area to capture water before it joins the drainage system, mitigating flooding.

Consultation was key, and the people of Colin were involved in every step of the development of this landscape-led masterplan.
