Have your say on proposed changes to West Bridgford’s Tudor Square

18 February 2019

Residents, businesses and stakeholders are invited to share their views on proposed changes to Tudor Square in West Bridgford, as part of a three week consultation exploring plans to improve its appearance and increase its connectivity with the rest of the town centre. 

Subject to the securing of funding, the popular retail and business area could be transformed in line with the West Bridgford Growth Board’s strategy to address pedestrian flow and improve the green and environmental impression of the area.

Have your say here until March 6 on the potential changes that were initially prompted by the West Bridgford Commissioners’ Report.

They could also include changing the space in front of the Landmark and Rossell House buildings, either side of the Square and potentially removing walls and railings to aid pedestrian movement and create a public space for people to enjoy.

Additionally, new paving, planting and seating could be added to the area to make it more pedestrian friendly for residents and visitors alike.

Businesses located on the Square have already been consulted on the plans but Chair of the Growth Board Cllr Roger Upton said this is another opportunity for them and all stakeholders to give their views.

He said: “These proposed changes to Tudor Square highlight how this part of West Bridgford could play a pivotal part in linking our great retail and business areas in the town centre.

“It is a chance for you to give your opinion on how these potential improvements could revolutionise the look and feel of the Square to become the true centre of the town, making it easier for all to visit, shop and enjoy the adjacent retail areas on Gordon Road and Central Avenue.”

Surveys can also be completed in person until March 6 at Rushcliffe Arena’s atrium adjacent to its reception and the Rushcliffe Community Contact Centre on Rectory Road in West Bridgford.

The Commissioners’ Report here followed four months of questionnaires, interviews, presentations and consultations in 2017 that saw over 450 individuals’ views on the town centre captured.

Their proposals reflected stakeholders’ opinions on how to enhance and develop the Square, Central Avenue, Gordon Road and Melton Road and the findings were based around themes that will build the proposal of an overarching ‘West Bridgford Way’.
