The Initial designs aim to address key movement corridors for the community accessing shops, school, nursery and other local facilities along Union Street, Academy Street (inc car park), Mauchline Service Road and the junctions across Mauchline Road.
These have come from the information we discovered and ideas developed with the local community since September 2019. Residents, young people, businesses and community groups have all contributed through events, meetings, walkabouts and online comments. We’ve also conducted our own research looking at people movements, asking you how you feel about your neighbourhood alongside conducting vehicle speed and volume counts and a parking and loading survey.
These comments and surveys have been developed into five objectives so that the designs for the ‘Design Focus Area’ will endeavour to address current issues and opportunities identified so far by the community:
Re-design public spaces so they feel more inviting to spend time in and travel through by:
Create a safer street environment by slowing down vehicles and enhancing crossings by:
Improve local journeys by making it easier for people of all ages to access local facilities and businesses by:
Better utilisation of road space by formalising parking and highlighting links to existing public car parks by:
