Plymouth City Council is preparing a Concept Masterplan and Public Realm Delivery Plan to guide the regeneration of the railway station and its environs. The masterplan was exhibited at the railway station on Tuesday 2nd July with representatives of the City Council on hand to answer queries and assist in the understanding of the scheme.
The masterplan has been prepared by the City Council in collaboration with Network Rail, GWR and the University of Plymouth, and will set out the aspirations for improved user experience and vitality of the area around the station. The area will see new and refurbished buildings, offering exciting and inviting new and complementary uses to the area, attractive and safe areas of public realm for people to enjoy, the creation of a gateway to the city and improved access between the station, university and city centre that everyone can be proud of.
The area will be transformed over a number of years, and the masterplan will help to guide the submission and determination of planning applications and permitted development works for the demolition and construction works in the area. Where known, the masterplan will also identify the regeneration scheme’s delivery partners and phasing.
Elements of the scheme are expected to include:
