Gypsey Race Park & Avenue - Phase 1

December 17, 2015 - January 30, 2019

This project will provide significant environment improvements to a key site in an area of comprehensive development. As one of the first major public realm improvements in the delivery of the AAP and by occupying a gateway site, it is essential that a high quality scheme is developed that is capable of increasing the marketability of Bridlington town centre and setting a high standard for subsequent schemes.

The project will improve 3100 square metres of derelict land and 120 m of water course in Bridlington town centre, creating the first phase of the Gypsey Race Park and Avenue which will form an attractive boundary to a 14700 square metre strategic development site.

The Gypsey Race is the most northerly chalk stream in England, rising in the Yorkshire Wolds and flowing into the harbour at Bridlington.  The river environs of the section that flows through Bridlington are currently poor and offer little ecological or amenity value. The investment into this blue and green infrastructure will enhance bio-diversity, contribute to local economic objectives and provide health and well-being benefits for the local population.

The banks of the Gypsey Race will be re-profiled to maximise development and amenity space; the banks will be reinforced and planted with sustainable planting that will create new habitats; and the Gypsey Race bed will be cleaned; debris removed and new river bed ‘seeded’ with the cleaned former substrate.

The river environs will be landscaped to create a green corridor which will bring significant green infrastructure into the town centre, acting as an enhanced wildlife corridor, a quality backdrop for high value development and leisure activity.

A floodwater retention area has been incorporated into the scheme to mitigate the flood risk for commercial areas downstream. The area allows for the possible impacts of future climate change. The area will be managed for wildlife and act as a learning zone for local school children.
