City Centre East

Following a public engagement exercise in May last year, the City Centre East Transport Scheme has now been developed to a detailed stage and an 8 week public engagement exercise will begin this month.

To assist businesses, residents and members of the public that are living within the re-development area, an information pack has been produced, along with a dedicated website.

In May 2019, a number of events were set up to give information to the public on a variety of measures that are designed to reduce air pollution in the city centre, specifically Nitrogen Dioxide. The re-designing of roads, to improve public transport and active travel is one of these measures.

The Council is now engaging on the final scheme which includes:

Revised City Centre East Road Layout

The scheme also includes two new event spaces.
