This is an exciting opportunity for those who live, work or own a business in Plymouth, to reclaim, reinvigorate and renew Armada Way, creating a space that brings life back to the heart of the city.
All the images of the proposals in this consultation, show what Armada Way would look like on initial completion e.g. the heights of the trees are accurate from planting, they will grow much more over time.
Slide the image below to see the transformation of Armada Way in the new proposed scheme.
We really hope that the proposed scheme has something for everyone to make Armada Way an attractive, green and usable space.

Shopping habits and how people want to use public spaces are changing and city centres such as ours need to evolve and adapt.
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.
Our ambition is to bring a large amount of residential development into the centre, giving new leases of life to tired, vacant buildings, encouraging more people to dwell in and use the city centre both during the day and at night.
The current Armada Way does not encourage investment or inspire confidence from developers.
Plymouth City Council wants to change this and feels that Armada Way deserves investment to put it on a similar footing to other major city centres across the country.
