In January 2023, the Government announced the names and locations of the UK projects which had been successful in being awarded a Levelling Up Grant following the most recent round of bidding for the Funding.
TEP was delighted to hear that three of our multidisciplinary projects have received substantial Levelling Up Funding, which will enable these schemes to be brought to life.
Eden Project Morecambe:
Eden Project North secured the full £50m of Levelling Up Funding for Eden Project Morecambe in Lancashire, a proposed 360-degree visitor attraction that is certain to boost economic and social prospects across the region, promote environmental awareness and reimagine the town’s sea front. TEP provided integral support to the Eden Project team preparing the landscape design proposals, ecological surveys and technical expertise, and landscape and visual impact assessment.
The Northern Roots Learning Centre:
The Northern Roots Learning Centre is an educational facility located within Northern Roots, the UK’s largest urban farm and eco-park at Snipe Clough, Oldham, Greater Manchester. The Centre will provide training and vocational courses focussed around environmental and sustainable skills. In support of the project, TEP produced a green and blue infrastructure strategy, and more recently completed arboricultural impact assessments and ecological surveys & assessments, which informed the hybrid planning application for the development.
Oldham Greenway will be a new multi-user pathway linking the Green Shoots Centre at Rhodes Bank in Oldham with Northern Roots urban farm and a new town centre green space, Jubilee Park. The Greenway will be an accessible and safe route for the community to get across town, reaching the new venues by bike or on foot. TEP supported the project by identifying opportunities for urban greening along the length of the route such as living walls and bioswales.
We are proud to have been involved with these inspiring initiatives, all of which will drive much needed economic, social and environmental enhancements.
