Bakers Quay South
southern half of Bakers Quay, including the former Downings
malthouses and Foster Bros Oil & Cake Mills, adjoins
the main Gloucester Quays development area but is under separate
ownership. Plans for redeveloping one of the malthouses were
approved in 2010.
Monk Meadow Quay North
Homes are building houses and apartments on land to the south of the Monk Meadow
section of the Gloucester Quays project. The area was formerly occupied
by timber yards and a timber pond. The northern
section of the canal frontage retains its existing trees with an open space and
children's play area behind. Houses are being built on the
section of the canal frontage, which is the northern half of Monk Meadow
Quay. (More details).
Monk Meadow Quay South
are building 104 dwellings on the southern half of Monk Meadow Quay,
formerly occupied by timber merchants Williams & Farmers
and then Travis Perkins. The plans provide for lorry access to the quay
so some trans-shipment will still be possible. Planning permission
was granted on 6 Sep 2011 (App
Ref 11/00564), and the first houses were under construction
by November 2011.
Two Mile Cut
new section of canal has been formed two miles south of Gloucester
in connection with the construction of Gloucester's South West Bypass.
