Business brief: Major study of Watford to be carried out by BDP London's Urbanism Group

A major study of Watford town centre and its adjoining areas is to be carried out by BDP London's Urbanism Group together with consultancies MVA and CB Richard Ellis. The companies, appointed by Watford Borough Council, will help the local authority to form a vision for the town for the next 15 years, including an urban design framework and development ethos. This will examine additional shopping development and improvements to the town's accessibility. The study will underpin the council's local development framework and provide a basis for a long-term strategy for the town centre. It will also co-ordinate major proposals for the development of the town's hospital area and its cultural and leisure quarter.
