Regeneration project in the town centre with public piazza, cafes, retail, housing, linear greenspace by a stream and a roundabout.
An eye catching line of red leaved trees weaves through the piazza, emphasized by a band of blue recycled glass blocks lit at night and bands of paving enclose a performance area. Seating is informal on steps and more formal on benches.
The roundabout creates a gateway to the scheme with a bold design of giant fastigiate oak trees spiralling up in heights to 9m and clipped hedges. The York Stream has been re-modelled with native plants to create a wildlife oasis.
