Willmott Dixon has been appointed by Telford & Wrekin Council to deliver the first phase of the town’s Station Quarter project, a regeneration project made possible after the council secured £22.3m from the Government’s Towns Fund

Procured via Pagabo’s Major Works Framework, the project brings together Willmott Dixon’s construction and development solutions expertise.

To be situated between town’s railway station and Telford town centre, the development will include new homes, as well as a digital skills and enterprise hub run by Telford College and the University of Wolverhampton.

The project is the latest in a proud history of regeneration schemes for Willmott Dixon. In the summer of 2020, the business completed the £20m regeneration of Rochdale Riverside, creating 200,000 sq. ft of retail and leisure space to encourage inward investment to the town.

Secondly in the Autumn of 2020, the business handed over the Llys Cadwyn development in Pontypridd to Rhondda Cynon Taff County Borough Council, delivering an innovative business and leisure scheme to replace a derelict 1960’s shopping centre.

A boost for Telford town centre

David Atkinson, regional head of land and development for Willmott Dixon, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Telford & Wrekin Council and the town’s stakeholders in delivering the Station Quarter project. Working with leading development, design and funding partners we’re excited create a new community in Telford town centre.

“The Station Quarter is a highly accessible site, and we’re keen to unlock its potential to support the wider regeneration of Telford town centre.

“We have ambitious plans to deliver highly-sustainable, new homes, educational space, and leisure facilities supported by new public realm and green spaces.”

Jonathan Parker, national framework manager at Pagabo, added: “We’re really pleased to have supported Telford & Wrekin Council with the quick and compliant appointment of Willmott Dixon.

“This investment is set to provide a huge boost to the town centre and ultimately bring benefits to the whole local community. I’m looking forward to seeing this new development start to take shape over the coming months.”
