Project Detail

Everards Meadows, Phase 1A

Regeneration Project of the Year Award 2019 Winner

Everards Meadows Phase 1A is part of Everards Brewery’s relocation strategy to create a viable and vibrant destination.

The multi-phased strategy will transform an area of the Soar Valley floodplain to the south of the Brewery’s former site at Castle Acres. The move has enabled expansion of Fosse Park.

Phase 1A involved constructing a new cycle centre and cafe as well as site-wide green infrastructure works to regenerate an area of previous inaccessible green space.

Project Overview

The project has unlocked connections to the local community and provided employment opportunities..

New cycle paths and the construction of a new cycle and pedestrian bridge over the River Soar links the communities of Enderby and Glen Parva to the site and opens up access to the SusTrans South Midlands Cycle Route and Leicester city centre.

The development’s focus on alternative, sustainable transport provided a growth opportunity for local business Rutland Cycles, which has opened its 14th store at the new cycle centre

The scheme also created work and learning opportunities through an employment and skills plan developed collaboratively between the contractor, client and Blaby District Council.
