CMA Planning have secured approval for a revised planning and listed building consent for a 130,000 sqft masterplan to regenerate a complex of grade-II listed Victorian Mill Buildings on the River Calder in Wakefield for City & Provincial.  Sited next to the Hepworth Wakefield Gallery, Rutland Mills will form a new phase in the Wakefield Waterfront masterplan, expanding the creative, art and cultural programme currently led by the Hepworth.

A total of 32,000 sqft of space will be created in new buildings built in brick alongside the mill buildings.  The vision for the complex includes studio space for artists, designers and musicians; workspace for the digital and tech industries; artisan craft and makers; commercial space; retail; restaurant and hotel offers; event and gallery space and education.  The Hawkins\Brown masterplan will also deliver new public realm, including a central courtyard event space, gateways, and a new route to the River Calder.
