Nicholas Pearson Associates is working with Mott MacDonald on behalf of Bath and North East Somerset Council to create a shared space to enhance one of the oldest and most historic streets within the centre of Bath.
The aim of the scheme is to use a ‘shared space’ approach to the redesign of one of Bath’s busiest and most historic streets. The proposals will encompass the eastern extent of Lower Borough Walls and Stall Street which extends from the location of the original South Gate within the medieval city walls up to the Roman Baths.
The redesign will introduce flush surfaces across the streetscape using natural stone for both the pavements and carriageway to produce a more coherent and inclusive space that allows pedestrians and cyclists priority over vehicles.
The concept designs were presented to local stakeholders and user groups at a public consultation event in the Guildhall in Bath during April and the feedback received has been incorporated into the detailed design being taken forward for the scheme.
The project follows on from the successful public realm enhancements undertaken in the city centre on High St and Northumberland Place.
