Our Vision for Station Square

The main purpose of the initiative is to provide a district centre where people want to shop as well as delivering new homes to meet local people’s aspirations. In addition, the initiative will deliver new and improved, high quality public spaces.

The proposals will provide an opportunity to enhance Station Square introducing a high quality gateway to the retail units and station. The new public space has been designed to create a functional area which will improve the sense of arrival, direction and safety.

The new public space will be framed by new retail units to the north and south of the square, with office space above ground level. The vehicular loop has been reduced to maximise the public realm which fronts the station. It is proposed that a bespoke café with an external terrace will generate activity and vibrancy within the new space.

Over 20,000 sq ft of new retail and office space to be provided over ground, first and second floors. The vision for the new square is to provide a range of retail unit size options for small to medium sized businesses, with opportunities for office occupiers at first and second floor level.
