Zone 2 - Northumberland Street Area
Our plans for Northumberland Street are to re-invigorate the shopping street and its side streets, with longer term plans to declutter and reorganise the area while creating more places for people to dwell and enjoy over an extended day. We want people to enjoy our main street outside of normal shopping times and help to develop new trading opportunities.
Proposals for Northumberland Street:
Servicing and delivery timing restrictions on Northumberland Street would be revised in line with the other parts of the city included in these proposals. This means deliveries would be allowed between 10pm and 7am.
Having standard servicing and delivery times would provide consistency across freight routes in the city centre and an improved experience for pedestrians by avoiding large vehicles being in the area at the same time as people on foot.
Proposals for Ridley Place:
We want to create a street with a distinctive identity, with space for pavement cafes, arts, festivals and green areas adjacent to the businesses that operate there.
Disabled parking would be relocated to the area of Northumberland Road outside the City Hall / City Pool, and would also be available on North Street.
Pay and display parking would be removed from Ridley Place but loading provision would be retained.
Proposals for Northumberland Road:
We want to create additional pedestrian space at the junction with Northumberland Street to allow the development of new public spaces for everyone to enjoy.
Servicing and delivery timing restrictions in this area would also be revised in line with the other areas. This means deliveries would only be allowed between 10pm and 7am .
Disabled parking would be relocated to the area of Northumberland Road outside the City Hall / City Pool, and would also available on North Street.
Taxi rank provision would be relocated within the street.
