Riverside Meadow

The Riverside Meadow, formerly the site of Shrewsbury Town football ground since the turn of the 20th century became available when the football club relocated to a new out of town stadium. The site was acquired by developers and Arrol Architects obtained Planning Permission for a development of town houses, apartments and an element of social housing, providing 179 residential units.

The scheme was developed around open sided squares in the form of crescents and terraces and is constrained on one side by the River Severn and by the railway on the other. The communal gardens in the squares were designed to provide floodwater alleviation in storm conditions.
