We understand the depth of feeling surrounding the previous Council Leader’s decision to fell the trees on Armada Way and we are trying to move forward and create a city centre we can all be proud of.
On 19 May 2023, the new leader of Plymouth City Council, Councillor Tudor Evans OBE, set out his firm intention to rescue, reinvigorate and renew the city centre and reunite a divided city. Within hours of becoming the Leader he overturned the original decision in relation to the scheme and asked officers to come forward with new options to regenerate Armada Way.
