Following a global competition led by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the winning design to transform Prescot’s Market Place has been chosen.

The proposal from Mark Wray Architects and Seed Landscapes will create a landmark space for people to use and enjoy all year round, with seating, lighting, space for a café, toilets and space to host community groups and activities.

Construction work will start early 2018 and will be completed in summer 2018. See proposed plan.

The project is part of the Prescot Townscape Heritage Initiative, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
