The Future

This is a large and complex site so to move to make it more manageable the Trust is breaking it down into phases. Phase one will incorporate the most iconic part of the site, the 7 Storey Building, the adjacent engineering workshop and yard area.

 

This phase will include a mix of residential, enterprise and educational space.
