Forming part of the Snow Hill Public Realm programme, the aim of the Cornwall Street scheme is to create a quiet street, which emphasises pedestrians, encourages dwell time and minimises the effect of motor traffic.
This street has a growing reputation as a food destination, with venues such as Zen Metro, Purnell’s and Opus all located here.
The scheme draws upon work already completed on the nearby Church Street Square, providing a unified style for this part of the District. Pavement widening and traffic calming measures are key aspects of the project and are complimented by the planting of additional greenery, building upon the BID’s dedication to greening the area.
The scheme is set to complete autumn 2021.
