This draft outlines the council's plan for regenerating both Broadmead and Castle Park - some areas fall under our planning area and will affect Old Market.
We fully support the draft plan's mention of improved 'super crossings' on Castle, Penn and Bond streets. As well as this, a new segregated cycle route along Newgate and through Castlemead into St Jude's would greatly improve and reconnect the area to the city centre.
The proposal for a super crossing on Penn Street with bike lanes and an opened-up entrance to Castle Park would greatly improve the welcome Old Market residents receive when entering the centre.
Improving the area around Vaulted Chambers Café is also of great interest to us as this is a danger both in terms of crime and anti-social behaviour as well as traffic conflicts.
