Derby City Council Deputy Leader Martin Rawson with Dave Bullock in the new square

Compendium Living achieved an important milestone this week, with the completion of the new public square on our Castleward development in Derby.

We  marked the occasion with a VIP breakfast event held in partnership with Marketing Derby.  The event gave local business representatives a preview of the impressive new open space and also marked the first anniversary of the opening of our show homes last year.

Situated off the new tree-lined boulevard, which links the railway station to the city centre, the public space provides a new gateway for residents, visitors and commuters.  It will also provide a focal point for the city centre development and an amenity for the growing Castleward community.

The square retains a number of mature trees alongside newly planted ones, and also features specially commissioned public artworks and a new childrens’ play area.

The new space, named Liversage Square, was officially unveiled by our Managing Director, Dave Bullock, and Councillor and Deputy Leader for Derby City Council, Martin Rawson.  It will be open to the public in early August.
