Corams Fields seeks masterplanner for redevelopment project
The vision for the redevelopment of Coram’s Fields is ‘to create a high quality, inclusive and socially safe green space that builds on its existing landscape heritage in a way that is appropriate for the 21st century’.
The site is owned by a charitable trust that was set up in 1936 and, in addition to hard and soft play spaces, includes a number of Grade II listed buildings.
Octavia Holland, director of Coram’s Fields, said, ‘We have to respect the historical heritage of the site, and at the same time look at how we use it in the 21st Century.’ Once the trust has appointed a masterplanner and developed a masterplan, it will use this to seek funding.
The closing date to submit bids to do the work is 22 November. You can see the invitation to tender here.
This year’s Landscape Institute Awards will be held in the Bloomsbury Big Top in Coram’s Fields on Thursday 21 November.
