Core Public Realm (GPO Roundabout)

Find out more about the work we are doing to improve the area between Union Street and Fleet Street.

The Core Area is the roundabout (GPO) and taxi waiting area between Union Street and Fleet Street.

The proposals include:

  • Removing the taxi rank at the GPO roundabout
  • Installing a new pedestrian crossing and seating


The public realm improvements will cost around £250,000, which is allocated from the Towns Fund.

Project benefits

Improvements proposed for this area will:

  • Reduce motor vehicle flow
  • Make it a more attractive area for residents
  • Improve the connection between the two main shopping streets

This will help to:

  • Make the town centre more attractive to residents and visitors
  • Increase footfall
  • Encourage more investment in the surrounding area

Project timeline

We plan to start this project during the 2022/23 financial year.
