The proposals at 1 Creekside have started this process and we are looking to build upon the changing character of Creekside.
The site is currently occupied by a range of commercial uses, and includes the Medina Works building which fronts onto Creekside as well as the Addey Street yard which is publicly accessible only during trading hours.
