The purpose of the Gloucester Heritage Urban Regeneration Company is to bring life back to the many historic areas of Gloucester, and to create a new and prosperous city for the 21st Century.

Gloucester, uniquely, is the only Urban Regeneration Company in the UK to have the word ‘Heritage’ in its name and no other regeneration area can claim to have played such an important role in the history of England.

Specific Targets for the GHURC include:

  • 100 hectares of brownfield land reclaimed and developed
  • Nearly 100 historic buildings repaired and re-used
  • 300,000 sq ft of retail floor space developed
  • 3000 new homes built and 2000 new jobs created
  • £1 billion of private sector investment levered-in
  • 300,000 sq ft of comparison goods retail developed
  • 150,000 sq ft of commercial floorspace developed
  • A new College of Further Education
  • 4.25km of waterfront area upgraded
  • A new mainline railway station and restored rail services
  • The completion of Gloucester South West Bypass

‘Gloucester Renaissance’ is the signature logo of the Gloucester Heritage URC and a city-wide symbol of regeneration.
