Planners of the future visit Middlesbrough to learn about regeneration
12 November 2018
Teesside independent commercial property consultancy Dodds Brown hosted more than 40 London-based urban planning students on a tour of Middlesbrough’s key commercial property sites.
The final year students from University College London’s (UCL) Bartlett School of Planning learned more about the regeneration of Middlesbrough from Dodds Brown Senior Partner Stephen Brown and Senior Associate Partner Richard Wilson in a lecture and walking tour of Middlesbrough town centre which took in the new Centre Square office development.
The talk and tour was part of a two-day trip to Teesside for the urban planning students to find out more about the regeneration of the region.
Mr Brown says: “It was a good opportunity to ensure that students from one of our most prestigious schools of planning could see for themselves what is happening in a region that is often overlooked by London. They can learn a lot from the plans for Teesside’s and Middlesbrough’s regeneration. In fact, in the future some of them might find themselves working in planning in our region, as there is so much exciting development underway.”
Dodds Brown is working with the UCL students because of its very active role in the regeneration and development of commercial property across Middlesbrough and Teesside. It is presently advising on the new restaurant and leisure destination on Albert Road, on the new grade A offices in Centre Square, on the Snow Centre and office developments at Middlehaven, on Dundas Shopping Centre, on Tees Advanced Manufacturing Park, on the new North Yorkshire Moors’ potash mine, on offices and laboratory space at Wilton Centre and on office space at Wynyard Business Park.
