In Consultation, Leeds, Mixed-Use Regeneration, Residential

DPP are delighted to be working alongside CityRegen Leicester Ltd and Galliford Try Investments Ltd to prepare a planning application for the emerging Corah scheme, at the former Corah Factory site in Leicester City Centre.

The development includes more than 1,000 homes, associated retail and leisure uses, public realm and landscaping and a new pedestrian footbridge on a key brownfield site in the St Margaret’s area of the city. The proposals were recently revealed as part of a public consultation exercise seeking the views of the local community.

DPP are providing strategic planning and pre-application advice on the scheme and have been involved in a series of detailed discussions with Leicester City Council to develop the emerging masterplan. It is anticipated that a planning application for the proposal will be submitted in the coming months.

Further details can be found at the bespoke consultation website at, or in the 3D flythrough animation below:

Speaking on behalf of DPP, Director Michelle Davies said:

“It is fantastic to see this important scheme progressing and we are pleased to be working with the applicants to deliver one of Leicester’s largest redevelopment projects. This site is an important part of the city’s history, and we are excited to see how the regeneration proposals will deliver new housing and commercial opportunities right in the heart of the city centre, alongside the brand-new public footbridge to Abbey Park across the Grand Union Canal.”
