Walthamstow Towncentre - A shared High Street

As part of Waltham Forest’s Better High Streets regeneration agenda, Project Centre were commissioned to design a significant piece of public realm in the centre of Walthamstow
 which created a strong bias towards pedestrians and cyclists.

Valley Gardens

Project Centre, has been appointed by Brighton & Hove City Council to lead on the technical design of Brighton’s Valley Gardens.

The main objective is to realise Valley Gardens as a space that people can enjoy, as opposed to just being an area to travel through. Design work is scheduled to start this month.

Valley Gardens, made up of a series of green spaces running down to Brighton’s heavily visited seafront, is also home to many of Brighton’s most attractive and important buildings, including the Royal Pavilion, and St Peter’s Church.

Proposed designs will see general traffic restricted to the eastern side of the central junction, while the western side will be used by buses and taxis. There would also be an improved network of cycle lanes and pedestrian routes.

The design includes significant tree planting, increased green space, revitalizing the gardens and improving the flow of pedestrians and cyclists. The overall objective is to remove a perceived barrier between the east and west of the city.

The appointment includes initial technical design of the highways, but may also include site supervision and project management of contractors on-site. Works are scheduled to complete in March 2018.

The project will run predominantly from Project Centre’s Brighton office. Kevin Donnelly, Project Centre’s Regional Director who will oversee the project, said: “We are really looking forward to getting started on this project to help residents, workers, visitors to Brighton enjoy the Valley Gardens space as well as to improve the flow of movement of cyclists, pedestrians and motorists.”
