Millers Quay, Alrewas

Millers Quay is a housing and apartment development built on the banks of the River Trent in the historic village of Alrewas.

The development comprises seven one and two bedroom apartments, along with 25 three, four and five bedroom homes. 

The site being situated on the banks of the River Trent, posed environmental concerns to the Environment Agency in terms of flood risks.

The site contained a listed building and was situated in a conservation area.

This Case Study illustrates:

  • CALA's ability to deal sensitively with design and form of a development in a Conservation Area and to deal with flood risk issues. 
  • Working closely with the Local Parish Council gains more favourable results quickly, especially so in sensitive locations. 
  • The right level of local involvement can be an assisting factor to gaining planning permission.
