George Street, First New Town Design Concept - Consultation

17 December 2018

A consultation is underway on the initial concept design for George Street and the First New Town.

Plaza areas, people-friendly spaces and a dedicated cycleway are among potential new features included in the draft concept design which has been produced following consultation with a wide range of stakeholders including community, business and specialist interest groups.

The George Street New Town (GNT) project aims to design a vibrant street environment that is safe for all users - one which significantly enhances its use for pedestrians while prioritising active travel and accessibility. The project is as key element within the wider City Centre Transformation project.

Whatever your views about the proposals, we want to hear from you. 

An online survey is available until 25 January 2019. Further information about the project and a video of the draft concept design can be found on the GNT project website
