Proposals launched for a vibrant, green, safe and fun Armada Way

Today (17th of October) marks the launch of the six-week consultation on the plans for Armada Way.

The proposed designs:

  • Recapture the scale and grandeur of Armada Way – providing a gateway to the city centre, linking the train station to The Hoe.
  • Include more trees and greenery – 50 more trees than there were previously on Armada Way (before the felling). The new trees will all be 3.5 to 8 metres high when planted, to give immediate environmental benefits and a canopy to provide cover.
  • Include a huge destination play village for families – that will be the size of five tennis courts, full of spaces to run, splash, balance, swing, climb, relax and sit, for children of all ages and their carers / parents to enjoy.
  • Will help wildlife and nature – there will be a variety of trees providing a range of habitats, shrubs, wildflowers and reed beds, as well as bug hotels and bird boxes.
  • Works smartly to deal with the city’s rainwater – includes a new surface water drainage system, powered by solar panels to make it sustainable. It will recycle the water to maintain the plants and trees.
  • Has improved safety for all – the installation of 12 and 15 metre high lighting throughout and feature lighting to up-light plants and create patterns on the ground. A much-improved CCTV system will help to deter anti-social behaviour.
  • Has more places to sit, relax and eat – there will be space for 500 people to sit.
  • Includes a new cycling path for people of all abilities – a new cycle path is proposed to cater for cyclists of all abilities, with cycle racks and Beryl Bike hubs.
  • Has plenty of pop-up spaces with water and power – pop-up spaces for retail, arts and entertainment.
