The approach to the regeneration of Hednesford Town Centre is established by the redevelopment of two dilapidated sites at each end of Market Street, the primary retail frontage in Hednesford.
The main catalyst for the redevelopment is the provision of an 84,000 sqft food store for Tesco. The store is built on stilts with the main retail floorspace elevated at first floor and the main entrance lobby providing travelator, lift and stair access. This approach not only provides a high density site coverage, but also nearly a third of car parking spaces are concealed behind the entrance lobby and under the store, therefore minimising the number of car spaces on general view.
Phase 1 comprises of a 2 storey 9,000 sqft retail terrace with multi use at first floor that continues the urban grain of Market Street. Behind the Market Street Retail terrace is a 16,000 sqft Aldi and a new Bingo facility relocated from the Phase 2 site, and a further Retail Terrace of nearly 6,000 sqft.
