Plymouth City Council has unveiled its plans as part of a multi-million-pound project to transform Plymouth's city centre, renewing and rejuvenating its open spaces and pedestrian areas.
Their proposals are on show in a three-day exhibition in the city centre, with residents and visitors being urged to go along, find out more and share their views.
Plymouth City Council has committed £27 million over the next five years to the Better Places project to improve the look and feel of the city centre’s main thoroughfares. This investment will be used to lever in other investment in terms of grants and private sector investment in adjacent buildings, including new uses.
Plymouth City Council's aim is to boost visitor numbers and trade and ensure the city centre looks its best for the Mayflower 400 celebrations and beyond.
Their proposals show how Armada Way could be revitalised as a vibrant city boulevard, a destination in its own right, and providing a clear connection between the city centre and the sea, are outlined – with plans for the section from Royal Parade to the Hoe shown as a possible first phase for improvement.
The Better Places exhibition opens today and takes place at 35 New George Street – between Tesco and House of Fraser – from Thursday 15 March to Saturday 17 March
• Thursday 15 March – 2pm to 8pm
• Friday 16 March – 10am to 4pm
• Saturday 17 March – 10am to 4pm
