Businesses in the city centre have come out in support of the proposed new scheme to redevelop Armada Way, saying it will transform the city centre.
Over recent years Armada Way has seen a serious decline in footfall, with many empty shop units. It has features that are in dire need of repair and haven’t been updated since the 80s. There are areas that are unusable or inaccessible, with growing concerns over public safety, which have resulted in virtually no night-time economy.
The area is dated, run-down and in serious need of investment.
This proposed new scheme aims to bring life back to the city centre, through the inclusion of a huge new play village, pop-up spaces for markets and stalls, dedicated space for possible performances and improved safety measures, encouraging more people to dwell in and use the city centre, both during the day and at night.
