Street Improvements (including boundary roads)


Street Improvements (including boundary roads)

What are we doing? What can we do down the line?

We are consulting on whether to make the LTN permanent. If this is realised then we will look to upgrade the current temporary layout to a permanent one that consolidates and enhances the space including new seating, cycle parking, tree planting and play areas.

To help with this discussion we have created a visualisation of what permanent changes could look like. It is important to note this visualisation is intended to start a conversation around the space and would be subject to change and further refinement. We are open to ideas and will need the community to share their feedback and ideas to help design these spaces.
