A new ideas competition has been announced to create a masterplan for a new public open space and visitor destination at the former Cronton Colliery site in Merseyside. The competition is open to architects or landscape architects and architect-led multi-disciplinary design teams and is being run by the Land Trust in association with RIBA Competitions.

The  competition will be in two stages, judged anonymously in the first stage. A shortlist will then be invited to enhance and present their designs and potential funding propositions at interview as part  of the second stage.

The Land Trust’s aim is to create a public open space and visitor destination, with a self-sustaining  funding structure, appealing to a range of leisure interests and working in conjunction with local  tourist attractions such as Knowsley Safari Park and Stadt Moers Country Park.
