The Union Mill and Lower Horseley Fields site is located in The Canalside Quarter of Wolverhampton. The Canalside Quarter is a key road, canal, and rail gateway into the city centre from the north and east, with the west coast mainline and Birmingham Canal running to the north of the site. The proposal seeks to build upon the areas architectural and historic character; utilising and expanding the historic fan like plan arrangement. Simple rectilinear building footprints are used, as can be found addressing the canal along its length. This strong building line creates a legible street pattern easily navigable by both residents and visitors. The proposal will enhance views of the site and conservation area from the canal and railway by creating strong and active frontages, a more cohesive landscape and by mending broken gaps within the urban form. The scale, layout and form of the development is informed by its historical context with a sensitive approach to incorporating the listed buildings standing on the site.
