Town Centre Diversification – Market Place & Newgate Street (Zone 2)

The Stronger Towns programme retains a firm focus on town centre regeneration, alongside initiatives proposed through the Future High Streets Fund. Projects to enhance the appearance and access to the Newgate Centre from the Bus Station, a linking atrium between the Town Hall and Mining Art gallery, a canopy to part of Newgate Street and the repurposing of property to provide an artist’s hub and gallery space are proposed to improve the functionality and diversity of the town centre.
