Key features and benefits
The proposals cover Abergele Road, Penrhyn Road, Princes Drive and the former Market Hall site, Victoria Avenue, Station Road, Sea View Road and Ivy Street.
Quality pavements, benches, street lighting, bins, trees and planted areas will provide a pleasant environment. There will be more space for pedestrians and on-street cafés with wider, protected pavements, which is even more important at this time of social distancing.
Improvements at the corner of St Paul’s Church grounds and Station Square with seating areas, public art and planting will create sociable town squares where people can spend quality leisure time. The improvements to Station Square will make this an attractive arrival point.
Cycling and walking
Clearer routes within the town centre connecting to the waterfront and promenade will make this a more pleasant environment to cycle and walk.
A new car park on the former Market Hall site, improvements to the Ivy Street car park and more on-street parking will give short and long stay shoppers better access and a pleasant experience.
Introducing a 20mph speed limit zone and dispersing traffic around the road network will reduce the negative impact of car travel on the town centre. This will make it a safer place for all road users and more of the town centre businesses will be visible to passing trade.
