What are the proposals for Spring Gardens?

  • Re-developing the existing duel crossings between Spring Gardens and The Crescent into a new single, wider pedestrian crossing.
  • Removing the existing canopy entrance to The Springs and street clutter and refreshing  the  public space.
  • Improving the appearance of the pedestrian area in front of Hays Travel (formerly Thomas Cook) through to Wye Street.
  • Increasing the use of upper floors on Spring Gardens by tackling the barriers to bringing them back into use.
  • Exploring opportunities to improve rear courtyards as the 'Yards Quarter' with spaces for independent creative businesses above and behind shops.
  • Grants to help restore historic shop fronts on Spring Gardens delivered by a supplementary £1m Heritage Action Zone scheme which the Council has already secured funding towards.
