Approved Planning Policies Banner

Please Note : This document has now been revoked and is no longer in use

The Bath Row & Holloway Head Development Framework set out proposals for the future direction of the Bath Row and Holloway Head area of the city centre, just behind the Mailbox.

With new development activity on its doorstep, the area was being reconnected with the city core, and therewere significant mixed-use developments approved on Commercial Street which capitalised on the success of Mailbox.

The key objectives of the document were to:

  • transform Bath Row and Holloway Head into a major city centre boulevard
  • build on the potential of St. Thomas Peace Gardens as a new city centre square
  • strengthen pedestrian links between Attwood Green / Broad Street / Five Ways and the City Core
  • promote mixed-use developments to expand city centre commercial uses and a variety of residential uses to link into Attwood Green
  • promote and support employment uses in the area
  • create high quality design in new developments, which builds on local character and transforms the area into a distinct city centre location
  • guide re-use and refurbishment of the collection of listed buildings on Severn Street and Blucher Street
  • guide improvement and part development of Holloway Head playing fields and related uses affecting Lytham Croft and Irving Street area.

The Framework was adopted in August 2004 as Supplementary Planning Guidance and was used to determination planning applications in the area. The document was revoked in July 2013.

A copy of the document is below along with a map showing the area covered by the proposals.
