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.
