The Plan

Managing a unique example of our architectural heritage is a privilege but the council had to balance conflicting priorities to fit a 1960s design to its vision for regeneration.

The Bid

 How could the council convince the HLF and Big Lottery that the Water Gardens deserved to be rescued for the nation? And how could it meet the requirements of modern legislation while maintaining the spirit of the original design?

The Future

Andrew looks forward to a new beginning for the gardens as a pleasant oasis for residents and visitors to enjoy.
